Arts Ahead 9 - 15 November
Despite having free evenings all over the place, I'm going to be clocking up not one, or two, but THREE museum visits in three days.
Yesterday, I battled through the cold, wind and rain to the Horniman for a Haitian Altar (more on that later); this morning was all about the Imperial War Museum, and tomorrow sees a trip to the Wellcome Collction for a new exhibition called High Society. I love getting out and about, but getting into work later each day means working later in the evenings... It's a worthy trade-off, though, seeing as I'm getting to see so many exciting things.
What else is on this week? More "fashion as art", lots of new exhibitions, and just a couple of theatrey things.
