Cy Twombly at the Pompidou: I don’t have a trip to Paris scheduled until May (I’m going with my mom and Grandma Rita—girls trip!), but this may have to change. You see, a spectacular Twombly exhibit is open at the Pompidou and I’m absolutely itching to see it. The major retrospective includes over 100 works of art, including drawings, sculptures, paintings, and photographs. Can’t make it in person? The book looks beautiful. Open until April 24.
David Hockney at Tate Britain: I can’t wait to get back to England to visit the new David Hockney exhibit at Tate Britain. The iconic British artist’s most comprehensive exhibition yet, it features Hockney’s paintings, drawings, photography, and video works. Open until May 29.
The Brontë Sisters on PBS: If you love Masterpiece shows as much as I do, then you’ll be pleased to learn about To Walk Invisible The Brontë Sisters. The two-hour drama tells the remarkable true story of clergyman’s daughters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë who against all odds become famous 19th century authors. In the meantime, I think I may reread Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Airs March 26.
Vanessa Bell at Dulwich Picture Gallery: Yet another reason to get to England! If you share my fascination with the Bloomsbury Group and/or love the artwork of artist Vanessa Bell, this show at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London is for you. The sister of Virginia Woolf, Vanessa was a talent in her own right. I’ve long admired her colorful canvases and would be thrilled to see them in person. And as a souvenir, the exhibition book. Open until June 4.
Big Little Lies on HBO: I am hoping to finish the book before I watch this new HBO series starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Though the book was set in Australia, the show was filmed in Monterey, California (where, fun fact, I went to high school). Can’t wait to see if the show lives up to the hype. Premieres February 19.
These look great! I just finished “Sweetbitter” by Stephanie Danler about a young woman who moves to NY and it made me think of you. Highly recommend!
I am SO excited about that Bronte Masterpiece now that you brought it to my attention! And I’m going to Paris in May too!
