I grew up in a house that was also a gallery. My access to art was higher than most. When you’ve grown up surrounded by contemporary art and where family holidays consisted of museums and not beaches, sometimes you want to escape into a world where it doesn’t expect you to reflect on the sociopolitical situation.
But years later, my city guides and travel itineraries, consist of as much culture as possible.
So for all you who want a bit more art in your life. Here’s a few exhibitions in London this month not to miss.
A little of what’s on
Sergej Jensen Moneybags at White Cube Bermondsey
I love the way this huge room lets you experience a number of artworks together as a whole. The current show is fantastic collection of brand new works exploring textile, geometric pattern and the reuse of material.
Kathleen Herbert Past time is finite, future time is infinite at Danielle Arnaud
I was mesmerised by her previous work, and this new series seems as equally reflective. The setting, in a Georgian house, is a contrast to the usual stark white walls. Instead you feel calm and welcomed. Allowing you to just sit back and meditate on the gentle sounds that echo around you.
Alexander Calder Performing Sculptures at Tate Modern
Probably the most instagramed show in my feed currently. From the pioneer of the mobile, you can’t help but smile and delight at the performance and playful shadows these dynamic sculptures cast.
Bejewelled Treasures at Victoria & Albert Museum
The V&A has always been one of my favourite museums and you’ll be sure to catch be gazing in wonder at these spectacular objects from a private collection of traditional and modern Indian jewellery.
