Repton Revealed Exhibition in Kennington
The Repton Revealed exhibition at The Garden Museum comes to and end this weekend. An exhibition celebrating Humphry Repton and his rare and beautiful Red Books, see how his career unfolded through his Red Books and watercolour paintings, many of which have never been publicly displayed before. Reuniting the largest number of Red Books in one place in 25 years, they were devised as a clever marketing tool; each with its own ingenious unique design. Clients would open the book to see his delicate watercolours of their garden as it currently appeared, and then would lift a flap, revealing his new design for their garden. This exhibition includes objects from around the world, and from public and private collections, including the Royal Collection Trust. Only a very short bus ride from our Kennington office, drop in if you’re keen to find out more about properties to rent or properties to buy in the area.
Alexandra Mir Exhibition on Southbank
This weekend is your last chance to catch Alexandra Mir’s Pre-Presidential Library exhibition. She presents a collection of US tabloid front covers dating from 1986 – 2000; each of them enlarged to two metres high, and featuring a headline that relates to Donald Trump’s business dealings, political aspirations or personal life. Mir’s selection of front covers from the New York Daily News and New York Post is part of a larger collection that the artist compiled in 2007 during a period of research in the microfiche archives of New York Public Library. Donald Trump made front covers on 87 occasions in the 15-year period in contract with the AIDS crisis that only made front page news 13 times. Offering a study of the attitudes and biases of the tabloid press, this thought-provoking exhibition is worth catching before it comes to an end.
