Then on Saturday, I went to see the Building the Revlution: Soviet art and architecture 1915 - 1935 at the Royal Academy of Arts. I love a bit of Soviet architecture. Really strong and also a bit delusional. There were photographs of the buildings as they are today, alongside of photos of when they were originally built. The modern photos are often very large, so you kind of feel as if you are in the space. There were gorgeous paintings by Popova also, and her contemporary artists. It was packed though, so if you are going, I'd go soon, and early.... worth the visit.
I also popped along to Dover Street Market, to see the Chapman Brothers new installation, and browse painfully beautiful clothes... one can dream! I guess I'm not a huge fan of the Chapman Brothers, but still find their work fascinating, ever since I was introduced to their work at the Sensations exhibition in the 90's. I wish I still had that catalogue!
