Georgia O’Keefe at the Tate Modern: We’re headed to London again next weekend and on the top of my to do list is this extensive Georgia O’Keefe exhibit at the Tate Modern. I’m also looking forward to seeing the museum’s new extension. The exhibit is open until October 30, 2016.
Diane Arbus at The Met Breuer: Wishing I could hop a plane to New York to admire Diane Arbus: In the Beginning at The Met Breuer. The exhibition features over 100 photographs, some of which have never been seen from Arbus’ early career. Open until November 27, 2016.
Missoni Art Colour at the Fashion and Textile Museum: Fashion lovers will enjoy this colorful London exhibit and I hope to sneak a peek myself. On display are vintage Missoni gowns as well as paintings that have influenced the iconic Italian fashion house over the years. Open until 4 September, 2016.
Peacock and Vine by A.S. Bayat: I’m looking forward to reading this new book about the lives of artists William Morris and Mariano Fortuny. Penned by a Booker-prize-winning author, it’s sure to charm art and design history lovers. I don’t know about you, but I love a good biography.
William Eggleston at London’s National Portrait Gallery: While in England we’ll also be popping into the National Portrait Gallery to catch this show of portraits by American photographer William Eggleston. I love his work (the above shot was taken in 1975 in Memphis, Tennessee) and the exhibit has received rave reviews. Open until October 23, 2016.
The Muse by Jessie Burton: If you enjoyed The Miniaturist (I did, thanks to your recs!), then you’ll be pleased to know that Jessie Burton just released a new novel, The Muse. I’m planning to pick up a copy while in England for the flight home.
