A throwback to pre-lockdown life when I was planning my exhibition calendar for the year. I wrote this post back in March when life was normal but I never published it; but I have decided to ressurect it as it should see the light of day!

One of the things that I love about the start of the year, is seeing the calendar of exhibitions. There are some incredible shows forecasted for the year ahead and these are my top three exhibitions to see this spring.

Tim Walker: Wonderful Things V&A

Showcasing the incredible work by one of the world’s most inventive photographers, I cannot wait to see Wonderful Things at the weekend. On now until the 22nd March, the show is a feast for the eyes in a journey into the fantastical worlds created by Tim Walker through his photography and sets that are sprinkled with a fairytale quality.

Tate Modern: Andy Warhol

There are fewer names bigger in art history than Andy Warhol. Through his fresh take on the new age of consumerism, the cult of celebrity and mass production, Andy Warhol changed the face of modern art with his new Pop Art style. This major exhibition is a true highlight with iconic artworks on display including the Coca Cola and infamous Marilyn Monroe creations.

Andy Warhol is on 12th March-6th September

Titian: Love, Desire, Death

Having studied Art History and Greek Mythology, I am beyond excited about this upcoming exhibition at the National Gallery. Titian was the most famous Renaissance painter in 16th century Europe; and all six paintings from his ‘Metamorphoses’ collection commissioned by Prince Philip of Spain, will be reunited. I will be booking my ticket for this very soon and a post on the exhibition will be on the blog in early April.
