Christmas Past 2013 | Geffrye Museum | Exhibitions. Time Out says Posted: Mon Sep 23 2013 One of London's prettiest attractions, tucked into a cleverly converted alms-house building, the Geffrye Museum in east London traces changes in middle-class taste in interior design from 1600 to the present day through a series of period room settings. At this time of year, a few carefully researched festive touches are added to each space: a spray of greenery here, a bauble there; nothing very flashy. In fact, nothing much at all until the Victorian room where the Christmas tree and Christmas cards make an appearance.

There are numerous schools of thought about the point at which it's appropriate to start planning Christmas. Running alongside the festive exhibiton, is a series of family-friendly events, including 'An Edwardian Christmas' (December 5 5-8pm), at which all ages are invited to enjoy a talk by candlelight, with a greenery demonstration, decoration-making session and sing-a-long.

Read the review → A major new project at The Old Selfridges Hotel in London as part of a series of off-site events this summer, A Journey Through London Subculture: 1980s to Now illustrates a perceived thread of creativity between the post-punk era and the present day - a legacy that underpins London's incredible creative potential in the present.

Gilbert & George, John Maybury, House of Beauty & Culture, Tom Dixon, Jeffrey Hinton, Bodymap, St John, Alexander McQueen, Martino Gamper, Julie Verhoeven, Giles Deacon, Charlie Porter, Chisenhale Gallery, Lucky PDF, Vogue Fabrics Nightclub, Sibling, J W Anderson, Bethan Laura Wood, Matthew Darbyshire and Louise Gray are amongst the 60 influential figures from London’s creative scene involved in the project.

The project occupies the vast first floor of The Old Selfridges Hotel, a cavernous industrial raw space, situated on Orchard Street directly above the Selfridges Food Hall. Project Supporters. THE LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL :: Home. London's best free haircuts - Cheap haircuts. The New Situation - Art in London in the Sixties. Exhibition Number: L13144 This exciting exhibition will focus on the decade when British artists, many of them fresh out of art school, captured the world’s imagination, finding recognition and success both at home and abroad, in Europe and America and at the biennales of Venice and Sao Paulo.

From ‘Colour-Field’ and ‘Hard-Edge’ abstraction, through to Pop in its many guises, from the New Sculpture, with its minimal aesthetic and use of industrial materials and flat colour, through to the beginning of Conceptual art, The New Situation tracks a period when British art was at the forefront of global art trends. What is truly remarkable, though, is that many of the artists of this time are now little-known to international collectors, where once museum directors and leading international gallerists considered them peers of Hockney, Riley or Caro.

This exhibition reunites over 40 artists to recapture the diversity and excitement of the London scene. Grand départ | Institut français du Royaume-Uni. Bonjour tristesse | Institut français du Royaume-Uni. London. 'Open Cube' exhibition at White Cube Mason's Yardwjlondon. White Cube Mason’s Yard presents ‘Open Cube’ an exhibition of the work of 17 international artists curated by Adriano Pedrosa. These 17 artists were chosen from a total of 2900 applicants who responded to Pedrosa’s call for entries sent out via Art Agenda in January. Pedrosa’s only requirement was that the artist be available for interview in London in March. Taking his cue from Brian O’Doherty’s seminal title, ‘Inside the White Cube’ (1976), Pedrosa’s exhibition aims at dissecting the ideology of the gallery space, challenging the dominance of the white cube as a physical and conceptual exhibition space and questioning existent notions of ‘inside’ and ‘outside’.

The 17 artists included in this exhibition, from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, the Netherlands, Portugal, Ireland, the UK and the USA have produced site specific work that seeks, in Pedrosa’s words, ‘to contest these national boundaries as well as the very identity of White Cube itself’.
