The first ever Instagram series presenting as art has made its debut at London’s Tate Modern.
It is said that ‘artists and poets still find life’s meaning in a glass of wine’.
The first retrospective exhibition in the UK devoted to the idiosyncratic Swiss artist Jean-Etienne Liotard opened at the Royal Academy of Arts on the weekend. The exhibition covered the artist’s time in Paris, Vienna, Geneva, Constantinople and London, with 70 of his rarely seen works.
London is a cultural melting pot. According to Greater London Authority the city has 857 galleries and 170 museums, 17,000 music performances and 250 festivals. Not to mention the world renowned Globe Theatre which first performed Shakespeare in 1599 and continues to do so to this very day. With such a variety of cultural activities any out of towner, like myself, can feel slightly daunted when it comes to the problematic decision of which museum to visit on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
