      Event: Painting with Light: Pre-Raphaelites to the modern age

      Location: Tate Britain, SW1

      Painting with Light at Tate Britain covers art and photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the modern age.

      The invention of photography revolutionised the visual arts, allowing images of ‘real’ life to be captured for posterity for the first time. Early photography started to take off in the 1830s and 1840s, coinciding with the founding of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and just as 19th-century artists, especially JMW Turner, were experimenting with light and panoramic views. The two art forms had a marked effect upon each other, each mirroring the other medium to a degree.

      Event: Shakespeare 400: Royal Shakespeare Company in London

      Event: Rufus Norris directs in Brecht’s Die Dreigroschenoper

      Location: National Theatre, SE1

      A shiny new version of the scandalous beggar’s musical classic The Threepenny Opera is picking theatregoers’ pockets (in a good way) over the summer on the National Theatre’s main stage.

      Rory Kinnear leads the cast, playing the antihero Macheath in Bertolt Brecht’s play with music, rewritten here by well-versed playwright Simon Stephens and directed by the NT’s artistic director, Rufus Norris.

    • from 27/05/2016 to 04/09/2016
      Event: Foundling Hospital Art Exhibition 2016

      Location: Foundling Museum, WC1

      “In order for something to be ‘found’, it has to have, at some point in its history, been ‘lost.’” So says Cornelia Parker, the artist curator of a contemporary art exhibition Found at the Foundling Museum in Bloomsbury.

      Parker invited 60 contemporary artists to contribute either a new piece of work on the subject or an object of some significance to them that they had found and kept.

    • from 10/06/2016 to 09/10/2016
      Event: Serpentine Gallery architectural pavilion

      Location: Serpentine Gallery, W2e

      A sloping wall of giant ice cubes forms the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.

      Not real ice cubes, you understand, they are made from hollowed out fibreglass bricks, piled up and up into a soaring sculpture, described as an “unzipped wall”. Ingels’s design promises to be “modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both solid box and blob”.
