Michelangelo - the last decades

Where: The British Museum, London

When: Until 28th July 2024

If you’re in London, this is a must-visit for any art fan but you must be quick as it’s only on for one more month. Focusing on the last 30 years of the master’s life, the exhibition features the recently conserved Epifania – one of only two surviving cartoons by Michelangelo. Take a look at the conservation project here. “Rather than showing an artist in decline, this exhibition shows the astonishing dynamism that Michelangelo brought to his work in the final decades of his life as he explored salvation and confronted his mortality.”

Anne Imhof - Wish You Were Gay

Where: Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria

When: September 2024

“Anne Imhof is one of the most important contemporary artists of our time. She was honoured with the prestigious Golden Lion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, and she has presented monolithic exhibitions of her work at renowned institutions worldwide. This dynamic interplay, underscored by the inclusion of ubiquitous and iconic elements of fashion, photography, and an amalgamation of subculture and popular culture, creates an atmosphere reminiscent of post-apocalyptic isolation.”
