Good exhibitions 2018


#1

Not sure if there is already a thread for this.

Was just looking at the sound experience in the Tate (any good?) and looking for other things to do this week. There’s also a new VR experience in Milton Keynes I might try :nerd_face:

Have car, will travel.

Went to this a few weeks ago

Excellently designed, good mixture of “stuff”.

There’s also a Peanuts exhibition on at Somerset House which I have not been to yet but am going to soon.


#3

Thought I’d missed the video games (shush Lana…) exhibition.


#4

tried and failed to start a similar thread a while back

if anyone’s in the Hague for some reason there’s a really good one about Emory Douglas and the Black Panthers at West


#5

The newly opened expo at the BM, ‘I am Ashurbanipal, King of the world, King of Assyria’ should be stupendous. https://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/ashurbanipal.aspx

If you’re over in Paris any time during the next couple of months, ‘Millennia cities
Virtual trip from Palmyra to Mosul’ at Institut du Monde Arabe is a good one to see, albeit rather sobering.

If you haven’t been to the Post Office Museum and ridden on the Mail Rail, do it immediately. It’s brilliant. https://www.postalmuseum.org

Kubrick exhibition finally making its way to the Design Museum next year. Been waiting for bloody years watching it go around the world. Early bird tickets on TimeOut are great value.

Marina Abramović at the RA is bound to be ace.

Heard good things about Living With Buildings at Wellcome.


#7

Planning to go see the Anglo Saxon exhibition at the British Library because (nerd alert) I want to see the Codex Amiatinus. Its had amazing reviews, hopefully going before Christmas


#8

London!!!

I’ve been to the 180 show at the Strand 3 times now. Lots of good video art, good mixture of weird and accessible. Has the 6 hr film of the National playing Sorrow (which I love)

The Christian Marclay 24 hr film at the Tate is also great, especially if you’re a film geek

Can pop into the Jenny Holzer show while you’re there as well


#9

Where’s the VR experience in MK?


#10

It’s this place. I haven’t been yet. https://vertigovr.co.uk/milton-keynes

^this so much


#12

hey @sean

not sure if you have any plans to be in/near norwich any time between now and january, but there’s an elisabeth frink exhibition on at the sainsbury centre for visual arts on the uea campus which is absolutely superb. i saw it yesterday and was blown away by it. will definitely be going back before it closes.


#13

Ah, okay. I know where it is.

Cool, might check it out. Thanks!


#14

This is brilliant, but a) closes soon, and b) is a bit far to travel

But how about…


#15

A good blog to follow for good stuff going on in London is Ian Visits https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/


#16

Last time I posted that link on here, everyone said they weren’t going to click it because it would be boring.

:man_shrugging:


#17

One of the top 4 articles is “London’s weekly railway news


#18

Ian Visits is the best site for non-tourists. Has been for years.
Did they think it would be boring because his does round-ups of train news?

Edit: I see (above) that that may have been an issue.


#19

That, plus his name is Ian.

So he’s being judged for the actions of his parents? Poor show.
