Victoria Miro, in Wharf Road is a labyrinth of echo and pleasant atmospheric changes. Whether your interest is specifically an artists’ exhibition or to walk around, this space will make you smile. It has traditional gallery like rooms with an interesting route between them. However, it is all about the garden and the unique Yayoi Kusama’s work in it; nothing else is needed. PS: don’t forget to pick the books in the back.
Wellcome Collection, is the ultimate place to be freely curious about the body -gross and beautiful, taboo and outspoken. Here, museum, gallery and investigation merge and provide an incomparable program of exhibitions where oddity, senses and knowledge are challenged. It is fantastic! One of my favourite exhibitions was Dirt: The filthy reality of everyday life back in 2011 where we got to see artworks made bacteria, diseases and everything we really do not even want to know is there. In a much more 'cleaner' -and gorgeous environment- do not miss the current installation Ann Veronica Janssens: yellowbluepink (until January 3rd). It is an immersive sensorial experience you will enjoy.
Elms Lesters, painting rooms, it has a preservation vibe within one of the busiest areas in the city. Its thick wall full of paint in a beautiful shade of blue, its airs of creativity and mess are present in every visit. Not to mention Adam Neate’s work is always a fantastic excuse to climb those steep circular stairs.
The Photographer's gallery, is at the centre of our attention for its commitment exclusively to photography. It presents the medium from traditional to challenging scenarios, from new talent to recognised artist, it questions this art form and it displays and secure a meaningful visit every time. Put down in your calendars their yearly Deutsche Börse Photography Prize exhibition, usually between April and June.
