1) Art and Alcohol

Nearest Tube: Pimlico, Vauxhall and Westminster

Ironically described as the ‘sobering exhibition’, the Tate Britain’s David Blayney captures the role of alcohol in art. Never have boozy Britain’s habits been so appealing.

Date and Time:  Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th December from 10am – 8pm

From art and alcohol to art and commerce, Danile Sachon uses art and installations to explore contemporary themes such as pop culture, advertising and the female gaze. This is his first exhibition and will include some of the artist’s earliest works, many of which allude to Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe. A stunning exhibition for those that are interested in photography.
