Tate Modern presents a special exhibition of two immersive mirror room installations by Yayoi Kusama.
This year-long, focused exhibition showcases these much-loved works by one of the most celebrated artists working today. Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms is a rare chance to experience two major installations alongside fascinating early documentation of Kusama’s experimental performances and events, as well as a brand-new sculptural work that continues the theme of endless replication.
MYBA Charter Show 2022 – the superyacht event of the year
It's been well over a decade since I was in Barcelona, and in recent years, I'd begun to hear vague whispers around London, a sort of polite secret the well-heeled and well-informed would occasionally share, that Barcelona was the 'new hottest' city in Europe. Greatness as a destination, is fragile, hard to achieve, and almost certainly anathema to widespread popularity; too many people, too exploited, and the character and charm evaporate under the tramp of the thronging masses. As you may well imagine then, I'm a little conflicted to write that yes, the rumours are true: Barcelona sits atop my estimation as one of the greatest cultural & luxury destinations in Europe.
Featuring Pattern Language art gallery by Squeak Carnwath
Jane Lombard Gallery will be hosting Pattern Language, an exhibition of new paintings by Squeak Carnwath. The artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, Pattern Language presents the viewer with intricate visual archives that entangle public observation and private introspection. The exhibition will be on view from April 29th to June 4th, with an opening reception April 29th from 5 - 7 PM. "Pattern recognition is an essential part of the human experience. We pull from memory to make sense of the world around us. Recognizable patterns allow us to understand common rhythms between people, places, and cultures, understanding the new through the familiar by assigning identity and meaning." As an artist, Carnwath paints her own thoughts and observations, often connected to politics and personal narratives, knowing others will create their own recognitions within her compositions.
Review of QT presents the green room – a glamorous jazz-infused...
So when I was invited to QT presents The Green Room, I got my favourite girlies together, and with our dancing shoes on we headed to Covent Garden. QT presents The Green Room is a secret hideaway which can be found beneath the creamy façade of the elegant luxury hotel Middle Eight. Unless you are in the know, you wouldn’t know it was there - it took us a moment as we stood out in the rain wondering where this gorgeous bar was hiding. As we entered the hotel, we were greeted and taken downstairs to The QT bar. The space is exceptional, with cool modern décor including concrete pillars, a parquet wood floor, large contemporary circular ceiling lights and cabaret-style seating with marble-topped tables and velvet cocktail chairs.

Featuring Expert astrologer Susan Levitt on your fortune – metal...
2020 as we all know has been a rough ride and although 2021 seems like a continuation of all the chaos that's been going on, we're hopeful that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Different from Western astrology, Chinese astrology takes a look at the year in which you were born which is matched to a particular animal from the Chinese zodiac. It offers pieces of advice and sometimes words of caution or things to avoid and look out for in that given year. If you are new to this, we highly recommend having a read at your own Chinese zodiac and understanding your characteristics and qualities which can be very interesting. You might even be surprised at what you'll find out. Or better yet, have a more intuitive reading and forecast of your present and future through a private session with Susan who will also be able to answer your burning questions. For those interested in finding out what the Year of the Ox brings, have a look below and in case you're unsure of which animal you belong to simply scroll down below to see what year you were born in under that particular animal.
Featuring Ada \ Contemporary art gallery presents inaugural...
February 2, 2021 (Accra, Ghana) - ADA \ contemporary art gallery, specialized in the work of emerging artists across Africa and its diaspora, unveils Enter Paradise, an exhibition of new paintings by South African emerging female artist Zandile Tshabalala (b. 1999, Soweto). Marking the artist’s debut solo career, and the gallery’s third consecutive debut solo show since opening in October 2020, the new paintings include a selection of figurative self-portraits in which Tshabalala revisits the representation of the Black female figure. Presented at ADA’s Accra- based gallery space and online, the exhibition will be on view from February 25 to April 18, 2021. Currently completing her (BA) FINA from the University of the Witwatersrand, SA, Tshabalala creates a distinct visual narrative and artistic expression by challenging and deconstructing art historical canons of representation – recurrent motives which often marginalize and obliterate the Black female figure.
Lapland UK - The Roll Royce of Christmas Experiences
Since having my little boy and girl, this special time of the year has been given an extra special sprinkling of magic dust and the sparkle and excitement in their eyes melts my heart. Having watched as my little boy’s wonder of Christmas grew when we visited Lapland UK last year, I wished upon a star that we would get an invitation from the big man himself again this year.
My London Fashion Week - VanillaOnTop
"A week full of inspiration and breathtaking designs; bloggers, press, designers ,as well as clients from all over the world, come to see the new Autumn/Winter 2019 collections at the two London Fashion Weeks held each year. Me and my sister Tiia Camilla Pötry, also known as my manager, had the honour to attend several fashion shows and presentations including the Junne, Kalissi, and Magpies & Peacocks shows. Magpies & Peacocks showed their new collection created from upcycled textiles. It was truly inspiring and interesting to see the perfect hand prints featured in every design. Kalissi took us into a different world; such a colourful and surreal show! It was high fashion with a brave twist and powerful statements. Many pastel shades, as well as different textures like tweed and silk, were surrounding us the entire evening. One of many astounding elements was the exceptional colourful headpieces worn on the catwalk. Hats and turbans made from silk or fur were crucial elements this year in many of the shows.
Featuring Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N - The perfect day out for Marvel fans
Last weekend we took our very excited little boy to London Excel, where Marvel have unveiled their latest interactive exhibition. After a brief video introduction and a security scan from Maria Hill, we were invited to enter the S.T.A.T.I.O.N, an advanced training facility for S.H.I.E.L.D’s ace team of agents. Zachary was rather overwhelmed when we first entered and he found himself face to face with the Hulkbuster! So when he got to don Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armour in a very cool and active VR experience he was super excited. As we moved through the rooms he enjoyed the great activities on offer, including various touchscreen games. Highlights for the family also included the massive moving image of Hulk and Captain America’s motorbike from the opening scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron which you could hop on and pretend to ride.
