Into the Unknown at the Barbican

If you have even the slightest interest in Science Fiction, get yourself down to the Barbican asap to see this exhibition. And if you’re a fully-fledged fan, why on earth have you not gone yet? From literature to film and everything in between, this exhibition is crammed full of gems (and highly Instagram-able if you are so inclined).

Fahrelnissa Zeid at the Tate Modern

If you are looking for some cultural stimulation this summer, I can recommend the new Fahrelnissa Zeid exhibition at Tate Modern. She is an example of another ‘forgotten’ female talent we should all know about. Here’s a blog I wrote about her show for The Women’s Room Blog.

And the Victoria & Albert’s just-unveiled new entrance on Exhibition Road is worth checking out. Talk about mixing the old with the new. Insta possibilities galore.

And pack a picnic and laze on the grass amidst Frieze’s first-ever summer Sculpture Park in the pretty English Gardens of Regent’s Park.  The display includes 25 new and important works by top 20th century and contemporary artists.

Download the enlightening audio guide here.

 

City of Ghosts comes out today. It’s a documentary film about the Syrian media activist group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Matthew Heineman, who directed Cartel Land. Vital, hard-hitting viewing. It’s showing at Picturehouse Central in London
