8 London exhibitions we can’t wait to see
One hundred years ago, the Representation of the People Act was passed, giving (some) women the right to vote in the UK for the first time. This exhibition is a celebration of the lesser known suffragettes who battled courageously to make that happen. One is Kitty Marshall, who was given a prison sentence for chucking a potato at Winston Churchill’s window. And that’s just the starch.
Do you ever think about the dark side of nature? And no, we’re not talking about shirtless Kylo Ren. For its next show, the Natural History Museum will follow moles, moths and crocodiles into the shadows to see what they get up to when the lights go out. Find out how foxes spend a night on the prowl (other than rummaging through our bins) and see the internal, nocturnal lives of original specimens from the museum’s collection.
‘I object’ is something you yell in American courtroom dramas, ‘I Object’ (it’s a working title) is something quite different but no less satisfying: a classic, ultra-thorough and super fascinating exhibition from the British Museum. It’s all about the ways objects have been used to mock, cajole and undermine systems of power throughout history. From ancient Mesopotamia to modern Brexitotamia, get ready for more dissent and satire than you can handle. No objections here.
