The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London
The Franco-Prussion war that broke out in the year 1870 is often the most overlooked chapter in the impressionist story. This impressive show due to be held on the 2nd of November at the Art Tate Britain throws light on this part of the history, when many French artists fled to London. Here, they were introduced to a wave of enthusiastic patrons and contemporaries, with the onset of a new era between French and English art. The key highlight of the exhibition is artworks by Pissarro, Tissot and Monet, showcasing how British culture had an influence on these artists.
North: Fashioning Identity
Take your attention off the capital and turn it towards the north to appreciate the beautiful combination of art and fashion. Starting 8th of November, treat yourself with fantastic displays in the ‘North: Fashioning Identity’ at the Somerset House. The exhibition will feature multimedia artworks, fashion collections and modern photography, along with social documentary film, showcasing the reality of life in North, which has influenced a new generation of designers, artists and photographers. There will be more than 100 snaps capturing collective visions of the Northern parts of England!
Southbank Centre Winter Festival
Coming at the back of a successful season, the South Bank Centre Winter Festival is returning this November with an array of festive performances and shows, rejoicing the coldest season with a handful of fun activities and pop-ups. The Wintertime Christmas Market will be the main attraction, and is expected to be bigger and better this time, with the season starting 10th of November.
On 17th of November, the music Koko in Camden Town will come to life with the Undertones setting the stage on fire. Paul Mcloone replaced Feargal Sharkey as the head undertone, and the latter has spent time representing the UK music industry with David Cameron, in a fight against piracy. In the meantime, his bandmates have kept slogging away, releasing their first single last month in a decade. Now they are bringing their ecstatic show to the city of London for loads of euphoric punk nostalgia. Watch out for the few bars of “Teenage Kicks’ ringing out.
Christmas at Kew Gardens
The season of festivities is right here, and the Kew Gardens of West London is all set to glow with magical illuminations in a festive mood. The incredible gardens will be getting another magnificent makeover this November, open to public from the 22nd. The plants and buildings will be lit up to announce of the arrival of Christmas. Stretching over a mile, the twinkling trail will lead visitors past giant flora-inspired lightings, kaleidoscopic projections, a flickering Fire Garden and singing trees. Grown-ups can take advantage of warming mulled wine, seasonal snacks and festive shopping, while Santa and his elves will be there to entertain the kids.
The legendary Italian artist Amadeo Modigliani died in a tragic incident at the age of 35, from tubercular meningitis. He earned a reputation as a well-known player in the vibrant Parisian art scene. Paying a homage to his impeccable abilities, there’s an exhibition starting 23rd of November at the Art Tate Modern in South Bank. The elongated figures of his sculptures and paintings are elegant, sensual and unmistakeable, all of which has been assembled together for his largest retrospective up to date.
Regent Street Christmas Lights
With garlands of light running down the length of the streets, the grand shopping stretch gets the seasonal makeover for the upcoming Christmas. Last year’s display was a throwback to the first set of Christmas lights in the Regent Streets, which sparkled in the year 1954. The decoration is only one portion of the wider display running all the way from Waterloo Place to Oxford Circus, crossing St James and Piccadilly. The central London is all set to sparkle with vibrant colours!
