Our March 2020 highlights
Imitation is, they say, the greatest form of flattery. But the best artists do more than simply copy. In this interesting-sounding free exhibition, the National Gallery shows the works of modernist painter David Bomberg alongside the Old Masters (Botticelli, Michelangelo and co.) that provided inspiration.
London lad Rob Beckett has quickly become a mainstream comedy hero, popping up on Live at the Apollo and The One Show, hosting a primetime Saturday night entertainment series, and appearing various panel shows with his unmistakable toothy grin.
When Tim Walker took over Somerset House with his ‘Story Teller’ exhibition in 2012, the gallery was filled with, among other things, a 10ft tall baby doll and an orchestra of oversized bugs. Seven years later and the photographer, a long-time contributor to British Vogue, now gets a show at the V&A.
Check out the biggest retrospective of Dora Maar ever held in Britain. Maar’s surrealist works centre on an extensive archive of photographs and photomontages, but her career has been somewhat overshadowed by her relationship with Picasso.
Mother’s Day in London can be amazing, but you need to put the effort in and make sure the date's in your diary (Sunday March 22 2020). Have a browse through our comprehensive guide to help you organise the perfect day.
This year-long arts festival celebrates refugees from Nazi Europe and highlights their impact on British culture. Expect a vibrant and all-encompassing programme of exhibitions, performances and events across a variety of London venues.
