Art exhibition review: Andy Warhol at Tate Modern 12 March – 6 September 2020

Mar 10 2020

Andy Warhol (1928–87) was one of the most recognisable artists of the late 20th century, yet his life and work continue to fascinate and be interpreted anew. A major new exhibition at Tate Modern – the first at the gallery for almost 20 years – offers a rare personal insight into how American icon Warhol and his work marked a period of cultural transformation. I walked away from a special press view feeling so inspired in my creative work as well as in my personal sphere! Extraordinary! An inspiring exhibition to take children to over the Easter school holidays. Don’t miss it when it opens on 12 March (open until 6 September).

Tate Modern turns 20

Mar 09 2020

It seems yesterday that I arrived to London in my 20s and saw the old power station being turned into a beautiful museum of contemporary arts where I saw really exciting exhibitions and retrospectives. On Monday 11 May 2020, Tate Modern will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its opening. The day will feature a dedicated programme of displays and performances across the museum – including the return of Louise Bourgeois’ iconic giant spider – as well as the opening of a special exhibition dedicated to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Mark your diary and take the kids to celebrate this milestone!

Reminiscing The Sex Pistols & punk rock with Glen Matlock

Feb 26 2020

It doesn’t happen every day to meet iconic rock stars, so I felt properly star-struck this Valentine day when I interviewed Punk Legend Glen Matlock, the youngest member of The Sex Pistols at only 16 and co-author of many of their hits including God Save The Queen. Glen and his friends Jim and Slick are back on the road in the UK for another great rock ‘n’ roll tour. The band of long-time friends, love to play together as Glen’s solo outfit playing songs from Glen’s solo career and rock-a-billy versions of Sex Pistols classics, the tour always shows the good times and camaraderie of a jam session at its best. Tour Dates are here: http://www.glenmatlock.co.uk I personally cannot wait to see these guys at the London gig on 7th March.
