With RuPaul's Drag Race winning another Emmy this year, it seems to be perfect timing for the Hayward Gallery to host an exhibition focusing on the art of Drag. DRAG: Self Portraits and Body Politics, which includes works by Cindy Sherman and Robert Mapplethorpe, has been extended to run until 14th October and is well worth a visit.
A collaboration we never thought we would be highlighting - Hollywood filmmaker Wes Anderson, his partner, costume designer, Juman Malouf and the stoic Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. We can't wait to see this in November when it opens.
Fine and delicate taste is the fruit of education and experience.
The Instagram sensation of the summer has been Frieze Sculpture in Regent’s Park, London. Open until 7th October, the show is in its third year and with shimmering steeples and endless mirrors, the 2018 display is the best yet. We also recently discovered the MAK café/garden in Vienna, which is an oasis of calm in the busy city. We also think that the gardens at the Cooper-Hewitt in New York are a particular treat.
For those of you who loved last summer's hit movie Call Me By Your Name, look no further than this new Instagram account, which features lead actor Timothée Chalamet in a new role - that of artistic icon. A fan has superimposed the actor's features across a variety of great works, including Caravaggio's Boy with a Basket of Fruit pictured. We recommend following @chalametinart
If you haven't yet seen Anthea Hamilton's show, The Squash, at Tate Britain, you are in for a treat. Hamilton designed seven squash-like costumes (in collaboration with Loewe) and an individual performer selects one to wear for the day and remains in a custom built white-tiled stage within the Duveen Gallery from 10am to 6pm. It has to be seen to be truly appreciated - catch it before it ends on October 8th.
We love David Shrigley's work and this positively fantastic tea-towel is guaranteed to cheer anyone up - even while washing the dishes! We have known people to frame these tea-towels as an affordable way to own a work by an artist they love.
A must see for those visiting New York this autumn, this exhibition displays an oustanding array of design with one combining factor, the colour pink. Curated by the museum's Director, Dr. Valerie Steele, it is a rare chance to see designs by Yves Saint Laurent, Moschino and Christian Dior all under one very glamorous roof.
The trend for grown-up colouring books doesn't seem to be going anywhere. This unique book features our much-loved Oscar winner in various different poses, ready for you to colour in at will.
