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.
Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery is holding a retrospective exhibition on fellow YBA Gavin Turk, his first major solo show since 2002.
The exhibition draws entirely from Hirst’s collection of Turk’s work, which he began collecting in 1998, and includes many works being exhibited for the first time.
Turk was one of the artists picked up by Charles Saatchi in the 1990s and his work was part of Saatchi’s 1997 ‘Sensation’ exhibition at the Royal Academy.
Step into the extraordinary world of the Moomins this winter as the Southbank Centre hosts an immersive exhibition on Finland’s much-loved cartoon characters in Adventures in Moominland.
The Moomin stories, created by Finnish author Tove Jansson from the 1940s onwards, are about a family of hippo-like creatures who live a harmonious life in the Finnish countryside. They found fame outside Scandinavia from the 1950s onwards, in newspaper comic strips, books, television shows, films and even theme parks (there is one currently being built in Japan).
Two Tom Stoppard plays are being staged this springtime in London, both with starry casting.
First up is Travesties, which has transferred from a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Starring the versatile actor Tom Hollander (whose range in the past has included the lovable vicar in BBC’s Rev and the sinister henchman in the BBC hit The Night Manager last year). Here he plays a British diplomat in Zurich during the First World War, whose circle include Lenin, Dadaist Tristan Tzara (played by Freddie Fox) and James Joyce among others. It’s directed by Patrick Marber (also directing his own play Don Juan in Soho starring David Tennant this spring).
The Science Museum’s big spring/summer exhibition, Robots, looks at human fascination with the machines throughout history, and features 100 different robots from a 16th-century mechanical monk to Cyan, a huge humanoid robot built in 1957.
The exhibition is set over five different time periods showing how robots have changed over time, and influences have included religious belief, the industrial revolution and 20th-century popular culture.
