Red Star over Russia, A revolution in visual culture 1905-55 Until 18th February 2018 2017 marks the centenary of the October Revolution, a rebellion which created hope, chaos, heroism and tragedy. The Russian Empire had became the Soviet Union, endured revolutions, civil war, famine, dictatorship and Nazi invasion. The Tate’s exhibition focuses on the collection of the photographer and graphic designer David King, who worked for The Sunday Times in the 1970s when he created his collection of propaganda posters, prints and photographs. The show includes work by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Aleksandr Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Yevgeny Khaldei. Tate Modern http://www.tate.org.uk/

Lisson Gallery: Everything at Once

Last year, Store X (180 the Strand) was taken over by The Hayward Gallery for the enormously successful ‘Infinite Mix’ exhibition. Now the Brutalist office block is home to ‘Everything At Once’, an exhibition which celebrates 50 years of Lisson Gallery, one of London’s most pioneering contemporary art galleries. The title of the exhibition is taken from a 1966 quote by John Cage - ‘Nowadays everything happens at once and our souls are conveniently electronic (omniattentive)’ – in which he predicts the instantaneity of our contemporary age. One of the show’s stated aims is to collapse boundaries between past and present, reflected by the non-chronological hang which sets works from the sevent

Impressionists in London

With the exhibition’s subtitle being ‘French artists in exile 1870 – 1904’, the exhibition goes on to explore different aspects of French artists in London, at different time periods and for different reasons. After an introduction, the exhibition shows how specific artists, who might rather not be associated with Impressionism, developed in their new environment. This is followed by thematic approaches, which are ‘Sports, Parks an

Rachel Whiteread at Tate Britain: Space Made Visible

Everything about the Rachel Whiteread exhibition at Tate Britain forces us to continually shift the way we look, even when we might be looking at nothing. The gallery room that is normally divided by false walls has been gutted and emptied to form one expansive space, leaving thirty years of Whiteread’s career sitting together. It’s a repetitive method that makes Whiteread’s whole oeuvre initially feel like one big series. The casting technique binds the differing works together: the underside of a bath, below a table, the dust collected under a bed, or other forgotten and unseen spaces. Yet the physical closeness of the works in the gallery space also makes their differences become clear: t

Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites

We all have a pretty good idea of what the Arnolfini Portrait looks like, and perhaps its currency within the popular imagination is produced and circulated through its infamous enigma, much like that aura still surrounding the Mona Lisa, despite the sea of cameras and bulwark of protective glass undesirably cramping Da Vinci’s painting. Fortunately, the Arnolfini Portrait is relieved of such extreme ceremony, although getting a closer look can require patience. More fortunately, however, at the National Gallery’s exhibition, ‘Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites’, you’ll be able to get up close to it undisturbed. The centre-piece for the exhibition: Jan van Eyck, The Arnolfini Port

Skate at Somerset House

You may have noticed: there is an ice rink in our backyard. Skate at Somerset House with Fortnum & Mason is back with a bang … as we crash, letting confidence speed our skates a little too much. Two of your editorial team have sacrificed their dignity (with joy) to experience the world-famous ice-skating extravaganza and tell you all about it. Having witnessed the construction of this rink while walking to lectures over the past few weeks, there was excitement in the air as we knew today we would actually be going on the ice. Disclaimer: we are both self-confessed terrible ice skaters, so were also feeling a little apprehensive. At the foot of the very-Fortnum & Mason-branded Christmas tree,
