Here at ADOmedia we are constantly on the hunt for inspiration. Our creative team love to keep their minds active in order to develop innovative design ideas and branding solutions.
We read the books, keep up to date with the news, magazines and blogs. We also take time to monitor the latest campaigns and technological developments. However, there is something to be said for stepping out of the studio and visiting a good old exhibition. Nothing stirs the mind more than an innovative spacial design, inspiring new work or bold installation.
Lucky for us then that 2013 is chock-full of brilliant and exciting new exhibitions, many of which are opening their doors in the next week or so. Today, we round up our hit list of the ones we want to see over the coming months…
Thomas Zanon-Larcher – Falling: A Part
Photographer Thomas Zanon-Larcher’s first solo exhibition starts tomorrow at The Wapping Project Bankside. He has previously collaborated with fashion greats such as Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Dries van Noten, Martin Margiela and Haider Ackerman.
The Wapping Project exhibition space is well worth a visit. They showcase a superb range of exhibitions throughout the year. Located in the Bankside area on the south bank of the River Thames, the gallery focuses on photography, film and video.
The Light Show – Hayward Gallery
From the end of the month, the Hayward gallery’s two floors will be the setting for 23 vast works and installations. 22 lighting artists will be represented — James Turrell, Jenny Holzer, Dan Flavin and weatherman Olafur Eliasson among them.
The installations will be designed to create colour, shadow, shape and playful disorientation. This one looks set to be memorable indeed.
From the 7th February to the 27th May, The National Portrait Gallery in London will exhibit more than 150 photographs by hugely influential American artist Man Ray. Images of Catherine Deneuve, Pablo Picasso and photographer Lee Miller are included in the show. Many of the pictures have never been displayed in the UK before.
The Liverpool Tate gallery has showcased some fantastic exhibitions over the past few years and this one, on display from 8 February – 12 May looks to be no exception.
The exhibition investigates artistic developments in Britain, Europe and North America through the movement of ‘glam’. The works of artists such as David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Allen Jones, Richard Hamilton, Peter Hujar explore themes of glamour, camp, exaggerated identity, androgyny, eroticism and dandyism.
Lichtenstein: A Retrospective – Tate Modern
From 21 February to 27 May 2013, the work of Roy Lichtenstein will be on show at the Tate Modern, London. The exhibition aims to highlight more than his famous 1960s pop art and will feature 125 of his paintings and sculptures as well as rarely seen drawings from a career that spanned more than 50 years. The gallery cites it to be the most comprehensive Lichtenstein show ever. Not to be missed!
