Another London at Tate Britain
Between 1930 and 1980, London was home to some of the world’s most renowned photographers. This exhibition explores the different relationships photographers had with the city—as refugees, citizens or tourists, and how this affected their work.
Made up of 180 images, Another London documents city life as diverse, but also reflects class inequality. The scenes range from royal weddings to life inside working class communities.
Pre-Raphaelites at the Birmingham Museum
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood formed in 1848, in a tumultous period for capitalism’s development. The artists rejected established Victorian art conventions as pretentious and restrictive.
Instead, they believed that artists should explore human emotion. Their paintings enraged the Victorian establishment.
