The Treasures Gallery is a new space in the Natural History Museum that will display 22 of the most valuable and extraordinary specimens from the museum’s vast collection. Each item has been picked for the story it has to tell and its value to fields of botany, mineralogy, palaeontology or zoology.
The theatre director Michael Grandage is putting on five plays in the first season of his newly formed Michael Grandage Company. The first offering from the new theatre company will star Jude Law, Dame Judi Dench and Daniel Radcliffe among others in a 15-month West End season at the Noel Coward Theatre.
It begins with Privates on Parade by Peter Nichols (Dec 2012 – Mar 2013) starring Simon Russell Beale as a cross-dressing captain in the army theatre unit during the Malayan Emergency.
London takes centre stage in the year long Lights! Camera! London! exhibition, held at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden.
The exhibition about London’s place in film history covers both the city’s film industry and London as featured on the screen.
One section of the exhibit looks at the history of the city’s film industry from the studios of the early years (there were around 90 in the industry’s heyday) to today’s work in the post-production houses in Soho working on films such as X-Men and Harry Potter.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, adapted from Mark Haddon’s hit novel, was one of the most original plays to come out of the National Theatre last year, with a clever adaption by Simon Stephens. It has now transferred to the West End after a sell-out run at the National.
The V&A is one of London’s best museums with an extraordinary permanent collection covering decorative arts. Two complementary temporary exhibits are a small photographic show, Making It Up, and Tomorrow, an installation by the Scandinavian artists Elmgreen & Dragset.
Making It Up: Photographic Fictions is an exhibition of staged, constructed photographs from the V&A’s archives. The exhibition has 19th century photographs shown side by side with contemporary pictures, all which are choreographed to tell a story. There are images by 19th century photographers, such as Julia Margaret Cameron, and of more modern photographers from Cindy Sherman to Gregory Krutzen and Geoff Wall.
