Another beautiful, sunny day in London, but cold. Cold by our standards anyway, though visitors from Canada, parts of the US, even Ireland, tell me it’s warmer here than at home.
It makes sense to divide your time between the outdoors and a warmer environment. There are two exhibitions, both ending soon, I recommend. Both Bridget Riley and Mary Quant were born in south London.
Bridget Riley, she of the famous canvases of dots, stripes and geometric shapes, has an exhibition that ends this week at the Hayward Gallery on the Southbank.
The captions are my own.
Over at the V&A in South Kensington, Mary Quant’s exhibition is drawing crowds of all ages.
It’s an exhibition that only reminds those old enough of the fashions and styles of the 60s, but shows how Quant’s designs continue to influence what we wear today.
