      Event: Art: Wifredo Lam Exhibition 2016/17

      Location: Tate Modern, SE1

      Tate Modern has a exhibition on Wifredo Lam, the 20th-century Cuban modernist, whose work is so often compared to Pablo Picasso. This is the first museum exhibition of Lam’s work in London since 1952, and is a major retrospective covering 50 years of the artist’s career.

      Lam’s modernist art spans 20th-century traditions including Cubism and Surrealism, mixed with Afro-Cuban imagery. The artist was born and brought up in central Cuba, one of eight children of a Chinese immigrant father and Cuban mother of Spanish and African descent. As an adult, Lam moved first to Havana, then Madrid in 1923 to study art. He stayed in Spain for 15 years, where he met and married his wife with whom he had a son, both of whom he lost to tuberculosis in 1931. He went on to fight for the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War, eventually fleeing to France in 1938 when Barcelona fell to Franco.

      Event: New Children’s Scientific Gallery 2016/17

      Location: Science Museum, SW7

      The Science Museum’s brand new interactive kids’ zone, the Wonderlab, is a brilliant gallery bound to get children excited about science and maths, with experiments, explosive demonstrations and even three slides to play on (to show the effects of friction).

      The £6- million permanent gallery encourages visitors to think like a scientist, with topics ranging from matter and mathematics to sound and space.

      Event: Beyond Caravaggio at the National Gallery

      Location: National Gallery, WC2

      Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was a Baroque Master; a sublime painter and rock-star artist, but also aggressive, ill-tempered and a murderer — he lived fast and died young (at only 38 in 1610), while still effectively on the run from authorities in Rome for killing a man in a brawl.

      His paintings show all of this; the drama of his life reflected in his revolutionary use of everyday subjects in theatrically-lit religious paintings.

    • from 26/10/2016 to 05/03/2017
      Event: Paul Nash at Tate Britain 2016/17

      Location: Tate Britain, SW1

      Paul Nash was one of the most important British artists of the first part of the 20th century, whose paintings of the ruined landscapes of First World War battlefields show a bitter reflection on the horrors of the war.

      This is the first major retrospective on the artist in a generation, showing his early Symbolist work through the First World War, and his landscapes of the interwar period in which he moved towards Surrealism. He was appointed as an official war artist for both the two world wars.
