In 2020 the Tate Modern was set to celebrate its 20th Anniversary with a year long Kusama exhibition, but Covid had other plans. Finally in 2021, the much anticipated exhibition opened, with it’s immersive works including the infinity rooms ‘Filled with the Brilliance of Life’ and ‘Chandelier of Grief’. If your looking for an instagrammable experience, this is where you’ll find it.

Amy Winehouse fans can learn about her story from her early years at this impressive exhibition, at the Design Museum in partnership with the Estate of Amy Winehouse – who have waived their rights to royalties in favour of the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Universe: Victor Vasarely
Selfridges London is bringing together NFT’s and IRL in a new collaboration, celebrating the work of Op Art pioneer Vasarely, known for his geometric designs and illusions. The collection, in collaboration with Paco Rabanne, marks the launch of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection, heavily inspired by Vasarely’s work. Unlike the other exhibitions, some of the artwork is for sale, in addition to commissioned NFT’s created by the London based platform, Substance.
