Art Exhibitions in London to Check Out!

Thinking of checking out some exhibitions in London but not sure where to go?
Here are a few noteworthy exhibitions that you might find of interest!

Design Museum
Ai Weiwei: Making Sense

If you have not heard of Ai Weiwei, now would be a good time to be acquainted with his works! Known for his thought provoking art and critical commentary about the Chinese government, Ai’s contemporary art explores the friction between contrasting themes like, construction vs destruction, past vs present and hand vs machine. Through conceptual art, photography, architecture and installations, Ai’s works are a commentary on value!
The exhibition runs till 30th July 2023 and you can easily book tickets online through the Design Museum website.

The Offbeat Sari
Also another special exhibit at the Design Museum, the Offbeat Sari, explores the multiple identities, forms and reinterpretations of the Sari by designers in India today! The Sari, to some a national dress, an everyday garment, to others a formal attire, the exhibition looks at how the Sari has become a canvas for design innovation and an expression of identity which is embedded with significant cultural meanings.
The exhibition is open till 17th September 2023, and be sure to pre-book your tickets online. Ticket prices go for £10.50 for students and £7 National Art Pass holders so don't forget to bring your student Art Pass for a discount! :colondollar:

British Museum: China’s Hidden Century

The exhibition offers a glimpse of 19th century China, filled with tumultuous wars and uprisings which saw the end of dynastic rule. Through everyday objects, art and dress, the exhibition offers a peek at the lives of people in the royal court, military, and through artists, reformers and revolutionaries. The exhibition runs till 8th October at the British Museum and adult tickets go from £18!

These are some exhibits on my list, do you know of any other great exhibitions to check out in London? Feel free to share them in the comments down below! :u:

I am excited for the Art and Artifice exhibition at the Courtald. I also plan to go to Dressing the Georgians when I get a chance.
