It’s been awhile since I did a review and there are two amazing exhibitions I recently saw in London, the first was the David Hockey exhibition and second is Robots at the Science Museum.
I was fortunate to be able to attend the David Hockney press preview whilst in London. Normally press previews are very nice events that give you time to explore the art without a lot of people and fuss. There is also a few talks, usually from the curator, sometimes it’s the press people. And there is usually tea/coffee and biscuits.
This press preview was completely different.
It. Was. PACKED. And I mean wall to wall with people writing, photographing and filming. I was able to go through in my normal style, pretty rushed in each room, go back the opposite way and then through again to see what I missed. The problem: normally I go into a room to find just one or two things I like (it something me and Charlotte have always done to avoid art fatigue) but with this exhibition that was impossible – I *liked* everything!Tags: art, exhibition, hockney, London, review, Tate
Charlotte and I recently attended the preview of Royal Childhood Exhibition at Buckingham Palace. While we ‘often’ (few times) have been to the Queen’s Gallery for exhibitions, this was only the second time we were invited to tour Buckingham Palace. And let me tell you, it doesn’t get old.
Most of the reviews I’ve read have rightfully said how brilliant the Royal Childhood exhibition is so while I’ll go into some of the pieces, I’m going to concentrate on the other items I find important: the tech and the family friendliness.Tags: #RoyalChildhood, audio guide, Buckingham Palace, cake, exhibition, family friendly, tour, video guide, young people friendly
