For the past few weekends I’ve been a busy girl. Charlie and I paid a visit to the Design Museum and the Summer Exhibition. The SE was hit and miss; it show cased amazing pieces alongside some really shit ‘art’. Pending artistic taste, obviously. The highlight for me personally was an oil painting entitled “Cowboy Joe from Mexico” by Angela Lizon. Just look at him! As well as taking a trip to Yorkshire, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay, I finally got around to seeing the Diane Arbus collection at Nottingham Contemporary. I studied Arbus at college and seeing such a large exhibition of her portraits felt surreal, especially after revisiting an article about the final images she took before taking her own life.
The Diane Arbus exhibition ends 3rd October and all galleries at the Nottingham Contemporary are free.
