      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.

      Event: Buried Child by Sam Shephard

      Location: Trafalgar Studios, SW1

      Buried Child is about despair in America. And, although perhaps not the most cheerful of plays, it is both funny and darkly macabre, and likely to be worth the misery just to see the very compelling Ed Harris and his real-life wife Amy Madigan play a desperately unhappy couple on stage.

      The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Sam Shepard is set in 1979, as the US struggles with economic slowdown and political unrest. The story is about a dysfunctional family from rural Illinois, farmers whose land is barren and family broken by tragedy, drink and a family secret.

      Event: Gavin Turk: ‘What When Where How and Why’

      Location: Newport Street Gallery, SE11

      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.

    • from 08/12/2016 to 12/02/2017
      Event: Serpentine Gallery Zaha Hadid Exhibition

      Location: Serpentine Sackler Gallery, W2

      Zaha Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings is a tribute to the late Anglo-Iraqi architect and, as it turns out, artist to boot, fittingly held in the building she herself converted from an old gunpowder store into a dynamic modern Serpentine gallery, with its free-flowing roof that swoops down to ground level.

    • from 16/12/2016 to 23/04/2017
      Event: Tove Jansson’s Moomin Exhibition 2016/17

      Location: Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1

      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).
