so lots on in london at the moment – you have to be organised and book to get into some of these exhibitions as they are very popular – especially mademoiselle prive at the saatchi gallery – a journey of the origins of Chanel’s creations – which is in fact a free exhibition. Ai Weiwei is a mammoth exhibition – large scale installations built with wonder and precision – all exploring a number of challenging themes including personal expression and comment, cultural reflection and past personal experiences. it needs more than one visit to take in the sculptures and short films that accompany the exhibition. its that perfect time to purchase an annual membership for xmas – a lasting gift for any art buff. go and see the beautiful paintings by rudolf stingel at sadie coles gallery – they are on at kingly street and the new wonderful space in davies street – on first appearance they look like faded monotone photo copies, but on closer inspection they are painted in an impressionist style .
