London is home to some of the world’s best art galleries, with collections that span centuries housed in buildings that are often masterpieces in their own right and the exhibitions inside these? World-class level, always. From classical to contemporary works by era-defining artists and movement-making revolutionaries to high-tech immersive experiences with visual effects and virtual realities, London is home to so many different shows and exhibitions each month that it is hard to keep track and manage to visit all of them. This week, we’ve put together a short list of what our latest favourites have been.
Yayoi Kusama, Infinity Mirror Room
We visited this exhibition last June and it has been such a success that it will still be available to book and visit at the Tate Museum until April 2023. This is a rare chance to experience two of Yayoi Kusama’s unique visions of endless reflections.
Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life is one of Kusama’s largest installations to date and it is shown alongside Chandelier of Grief, a room which creates the illusion of a boundless universe of rotating crystal chandeliers.
Dopamine Land Exhibition
Available to book until January 2023, this exhibition is a real interactive sensory experience designed to explore and trigger the happiness hormone dopamine. It is an opportunity to disconnect from routine, play and connect with your emotions whilst walking around different rooms full of bursting bubbles, meditative fire lanterns, creative crafts, the most beautiful landscapes and many other blissful attractions.
Hallyu! The Korean Wave
You can find this eclectic exhibition at the V&A Museum, charged with a joyful energy and packed with little-known facts about a small Asian country which has fully taken over the world!
The exhibition provides historical context for the rapidly growing fascination with South Korean culture as well as a deep dive into fashion and beauty, K-drama and film industry, including the costumes from Netflix's series 'Squid Game'! Every single display brings what is most Korean to the contemporary world through lighting, colours and the overall vibe. Throughout Hallyu!, there is an abundance of dynamic energy on display that echoes that of Korea itself... It's one not to miss!
‘Objects of Desire: Surrealism & Design’ exhibition
Located at the Vitra Design Museum, this exhibition will bring together the best in Surrealist design, from furniture, interior design, fashion, photography and world-renowned artworks from Surrealist pioneers such as Salvador Dalí, Dora Maar, Man Ray, Leonora Carrington and Lee Miller, through to contemporary artists and designs, such as Schiaparelli, Dior, Björk.
Open until February 2023, the exhibition is filled with playful, curious and poetic objects that uncover the rich history of Surrealism and its fascinating influence on design.
The above are just a few of all the wonderful exhibitions going on in London right now and all need to be pre-booked with tickets. If you’re looking to attend something new but less costly, try visiting ‘Room To Breathe’. This exhibition is an immersive room experience, aiming to help anxious commuters and busy London slow down and unwind during the day! You can find it at the intersection of Tottenham Court Road and Charing Cross Road get your boost of serotonin and B R E A T H.
