Exhibitions: Guides & Reviews

When Covid meant all galleries had to close for the most part of a year, it highlighted the importance of art in our lives. Thankfully, the world of exhibitions is back on track – and better than ever. Here we’ll share guides to all the shows you need to see. Our guide to the biggest exhibitions of the year includes world-renowned shows like The V&A’s Fabergé in London, Romance to Revolution, and Francis Bacon: Man and Beast at The Royal Academy. Our London guide, meanwhile, focuses on the best shows taking place in the capital. Looking for something with an interactive element? Immersive exhibitions are popping up across the UK, from dazzling light shows to historical VR experiences. We also have regularly updated guides to all the big UK galleries, from Tate to the V&A and the National Gallery. We’ll also bring you reviews of some of our favourite shows – recently that’s included Kyōsai: The Israel Goldman Collection at the Royal Academy and The Morgan Stanley Exhibition: Van Gogh. Self-Portraits at the Courtauld Gallery. Also not to be missed: interviews with gallerists and artists from our Break Out Culture podcast, hosted by Ed Vaizey and Charlotte Metcalf, with guests including Chris Levine, James Birch and many more.
