What we’re doing this weekend
I think that next year, one of the big trends will be from Japan. There have been a few clues; a big one was Takashi Murakami’s Britney on the cover of the biannual Pop Magazine:
Now the exhibitions are starting. The Future Beauty Exhibition at the Barbican Centre shows Japan’s signature originality in the fashion industry over the last 30 years.
Another exhibition that I’m really excited about is The Museum of Everything. It’s on its third go in as many years. Sir Peter Blake is curating his pretty bloomin impressive collection of random curios and marvels of Victorian England. Sounds like a good day out.
If you’re not feeling to arted out by now, Battersea Park’s Affordable Art Fair is a good way to spend an hour or two. Even if you don’t buy anything, it’s just like a really big, outdoor art exhibition. Sort of like a drive-in movie. Except with no driving. Or films.
