I'm going to Laaaandon to buy a.....ticket for The Tate Britain exhibition..? :)

I'm going to an exhibition called The Vorticists: Manifesto for a Modern World at the Tate Britain. The artists of this movement which started in around 1914 use lots of block shapes and angles and bright bold colours that appeal to me when I have seen them at other exhibitions so I'm going to have a look.

It finishes on the 4 Sept for anyone who wants to go :)
Trying to find out what else I can go and see while I'm down in London and have come across a fab looking exhibition at V&A but it starts after I go..just my luck. Its called Post-modernism: Style and Subversion 1970-1990 and looks amazing!

Here's a link to a great video about Joan Miro :)

If I've got time, I think I'll go to Miro, The Vorticists and either Thomas Struth or Print and Design Now...depending on which is easier to reach. I'm not always sure about Tracey Emin's work, it's good but very personal to her, so I can learn less from her stuff I guess.

Just found a Louise Gardiner exhibition at Quarry Bank MIll in Styal (til' 11th September) which is right near my grammas house so I'll go and explore that next weekend :) She mainly focuses on embroidery on canvases to create these stitched illustrations. I like her work because she uses unusual colour ways including neons :) I'll post some photos up if I can x

Excited :)
