Stuff this month AKA Get A Life

As a heads-up to all of you who maybe don't read as much free press as I do, and also as a reminder to myself , I decided to make a list of all the stuff I wanna do this month.
  • Go see the Radical Nature exhibition on at the Barbican for only another couple of weeks. I gather it is about the interaction between buildings and nature.

  • Check out the new Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum, which looks really interesting architecture-wise. How boring it is inside can only be imagined. I'll let you know.

  • See the SHOWStudio interactive photographic exhibition that supposedly had collaborative input from fashion types such as Kate Moss! Plus it's on at Somerset House - their gallery space is so cool, right down on the river.

  • Check out Kew Gardens before winter closes in. I have never been there and apparently Autumn is a good time to go. Usually don't like travelling to see green stuff, so we'll see what kind of priority this one gets.

  • The Serpentine Gallery's Pavilion project gets pretty famous artists, designers and architects to design and build a space in the grounds of the permanent gallery. It's only there for a limited time and is being pulled down soon (hopefully, or we'll have to wait til next summer).

  • Tate Modern. Regular visits here are pretty essential. There is a new exhibition opening on iconic pop artists, but I really like the annual Turbine Hall projects, which are really interesting and gloriously free! Walking there across the Millenium Bridge from St Paul's is probably my favourite thing to do in London.

  • Check out Christopher Kane for Topshop and Jil Sander for Uniqlo. Strictly looking, no buying I promise. (No, really, from what I've seen and heard, I'm the only person in the country not coveting this stuff. So not me).

  • And only in my dreams...I heard there is a retrospective exhibition of Damien Hirst's work on in Kiev, Ukraine that sounds so cool...

Wow, judging by this list, I look like such an architecture groupie. Well, they don't really do many exhibitions on my own profession so I have to hijack other people's. Well, actually there was one on feet in a museum in Prague once, but that is a whole 'nother story.


  1. i appreciate art-museums so much more after travelling though europe. keep reminding myself to do it in australia.....haha already got my christopher kane dress! x

  2. This is a fabulous idea! Can you do this all the time so I can avoid reading the Metro? Will definitely be seeing the SHOWstudio exhibition. I really don't make the most of living in London!


Aww shucks, not only have you visited my blog, but now you're actually going to write something?
