I received a lot of emails lately asking for exhibition recommendations, mostly from readers who are visiting London for short stays. As you may noticed, I used to publish a weekly art guide while I was in Tel Aviv and in Brussels as I felt that the communication regarding openings and art shows was not always on point.

In London it’s quiet the opposite, in few clicks you have all the information that you need regarding what’s on, but as you said in your mails it’s TOO MUCH info which can be overwhelming. So to make it more transparent for you, from time to time I will share opening suggestions. As usual it is obviously not an exhaustive list, so feel free to share with us your own tips.
