Culture Corner - Yoko Ono / Nathan Coley / Tony Bragg
As these fantastic summer months of sport, celebration and well, let's face it, a lot of rain, come to an end, the team here at LPA have handpicked the best current cultural events around town.
Part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, a selection of British sculptor Tony Cragg's works have been installed on and around the recently pedestrianised Exhibition Road in South Kensington. Nestled between the V & A and the Science Museum, Exhibition Road has already hosted lots of fun events and activities during this great summer in London. The sculptures will be on display until 25th November.
Opening tomorrow, Turner-prize nominated artist Nathan Coley's exhibition at Haunch of Venison aims to be a provocative look at the power of the photographic image. Comprised of a selection of politically loaded photographic and sculptural works, the exhibition is set to be a challenging autopsy on loss, memory and the power of protest. Catch it before it closes on 3rd October.
For those of you who haven't seen the Yoko Ono exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, now is the time to go before it closes this Sunday. We're particularly loving the participatory work #smilesfilm where people around the world have uploaded a photograph of themselves smiling through Twitter or Instagram, creating an international web of smiling faces. Make sure to check out the nearby pavilion designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei.
