The London Design Museum’s annual awards and exhibition is back: the Beazley Designs of the Year. This is an exhibition that showcases the latest and best in innovative architecture, digital, fashion, graphics, product and transport; as the museum says – someday the other museums will be showing this stuff.
Blackpool is not a place that conjures up the image of a modern art hub pushing the boundaries and curating original exhibitions showcasing pieces from the likes of Tracey Emin and Joe Fletcher Orr. But that’s exactly what the town’s Grundy Art Gallery has achieved with its exhibition, NEON: The Charged Line.
The end of summer and the last bank holiday before it’s back to business as usual is the perfect time to indulge in a spot of culture and visit an art exhibition (after all, the British weather is known for nothing if not its temperamental nature, so no doubt you’ll need to spend at least some if it indoors).
