The sun is finally coming out and it’s time for a day out in London! Where best to start than at one of the hundreds of galleries, museums and exhibitions London has to offer.
Here are some new and upcoming exhibitions in London:
Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear by Gucci
At a moment of unprecedented creativity in men’s fashion and reflection on gender, this exhibition explores how designers, tailors and artists – and their clients and sitters – have constructed and performed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams.
YAYOI KUSAMA: Infinity Mirror Rooms
18 May 2021 – 11 June 2023
“Tate presents a rare chance to experience two of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms. These immersive installations will transport you into Kusama’s unique vision of endless reflections.
Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life is one of Kusama’s largest installations to date and was made for her 2012 retrospective at Tate Modern. It is shown alongside Chandelier of Grief, a room which creates the illusion of a boundless universe of rotating crystal chandeliers.”
Open until late summer 2022 in the Jerwood Gallery
“This free display explores how humans have transformed the natural world. Through over 40 objects chosen by Museum scientists, we reveal the consequences of our actions and examine some of the solutions that could help mend our broken planet.”
Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Showing until the 5th June 2022
“Explore the natural world in all its fragility and diversity at the annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, where 100 powerful photographs tell the story of a planet under pressure.
Gaze through the lens of some of the world’s best wildlife photographers and marvel at the beauty of our planet.”
Virtual Veronese: a virtual reality experience
Showing until the 3rd April 2022
“Many of the paintings you see on our walls would have originally hung in spaces that are very different to the gallery setting you see today. Paolo Veronese’s ‘The Consecration of Saint Nicholas’ was commissioned in 1561 as an altarpiece to hang in the church of San Benedetto al Po, near Mantua, Italy.
Through the use of virtual reality, you are invited to see what this painting would have looked like in its original setting and discover the story of its creation.”
America in Crisis

“America in Crisis will bring together 40 leading American photographers and over 120 works exploring social change in the U.S from the 1960s till today. Organised by Saatchi Gallery, the exhibition is curated by Sophie Wright, Gregory Harris from Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, and LA-based photographer and academic Tara Pixley.”
