3 Things That Rocked My World This Week
Along with the 3-things-that-made-me-grateful-today that I text to my friend Lili before going to bed every night, I sometimes put together lists of all the amazing things that I’ve watched/read/listened/eaten. Here’s the three things that rocked my world this week:
Is the Andreas Gursky exhibition worth the hype?
Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre reopened in Jan 2018 with the first major UK retrospective exhibition of Andreas Gursky.

Modigliani at Tate Modern: Exhibition Review
Giraffe-like necks, almond eyes and blank stares. The works of Amedeo Modigliani are easy to recognize. Born in Livorno, Italy, he arrived in Paris in 1906 with a burning desire to become an artist.

Beneath The Tracks, Vol. II – Music Event Review

Fahrelnissa Zeid at Tate Modern: Exhibition Review
Fahrelnissa Zeid is renowned for her vibrant abstract paintings – a colourful and energetic fusion of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences with a pronounced European touch: the result of her being trained at École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s and leading a cosmopolitan life as Prince and Iraqi ambassador Zeid Al-Hussein’s wife. Fahrelnissa Zeid was also an important figure in the avant-garde d Group that opened the doors for contemporary art trends in Turkey during the early 1940s.
