Perfume at Somerset House

1 Apr

21st June – 17th September 2017

£11

Multi-sensory exhibition at Somerset House featuring ten extraordinary perfumes and their pioneering creators, who have radically changed our perceptions of fragrance over the last 20 years.

Discover a vibrant new perfume scene, the contemporary cult perfumes shaking up scent culture and the unseen works of art worn on our skin.

From the self-taught to the classically trained, the exhibition explores perfumers reworking their palette of ingredients to construct original and outrageous signatures which assault all of the senses. Providing insights into processes, engaging in discussions and even taking inspiration from customers, they have offered a much more accessible approach to perfumery that’s unlike anything seen before.

Wifredo Lam at Tate Modern

30 Aug

14th September 2016 – 8th January 2017
£16 entry

x62246One of the most notable Cuban artists of the twentieth century, born of mixed heritage, Wifredo Lam (1902 – 1982) pursued a successful artistic career within avant-garde circles on both sides of the Atlantic, and was closely associated with twentieth-century artistic and literary icons such as Pablo Picasso, André Breton, Aimé Césaire, Lucio Fontana and Asger Jorn. His work addresses themes of social injustice, nature and spirituality, and was greeted internationally with both consternation and acclaim.

This exhibition, sponsored by EY, at Tate Modern, celebrates Lam’s life and work and confirms his place at the centre of global modernism.
