As 2014 comes to an end we have put together a list of some of the exhibitions to get you excited for an Art filled 2015 in London. If you are not from London why not sneak in a cheeky holiday to come and see the beautiful city and some of this years most exciting exhibitions.
If you are a fan of old hollywood glam then you need to go see the ‘Audrey Hepburn: Portraits Of An Icon’ exhibition at The National Portrait Museum. The exhibition displays many moments in her life including the moments before she was a glamorous hollywood star and still performed as a chorus girl in the ‘Petite Sauce Tartare’ at Ciro’s nightclub.
Hepburn was photographed by some of the worlds most leading photographers at the time, like Norman Parkinson and Richard Avedon and these classic shots will be included in the show, so you can’t afford to miss it! Also included will be intimate and rarely-seen photographs from the Hepburn family and some of her collaborations with Givenchy who she was a devoted fan of.
The show begins in July 2015 find out more here.
Now here is one right up our street! The new trend of beards (and tattoos) is not only sweeping Britain but also is becoming more popular internationally as well and we love a good beard. Somerset House is showcasing 80 portraits of some of the most impressive and interesting beards taken by award-winning photographer Brock Elbank.
The people in the show include actor John Hurt, model Ricki Hall and Harnaam Kaur, a woman with polycystic ovaries which have caused her to grow facial hair.
The show begins in spring 2015 find out more here.
Now here is one for those more into fashion. ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ with be shown at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in March 2015. The show will cover McQueen’s 20 year career and will include a new section which focuses on his work in London. March needs to come around sooner!
