I went to the masculinities exhibit at the Barbican. It is £17 for non members/concessions but I was in there for about 2 hours or so so it didn't feel excessive. I recommend it.

Managed to get to the last day of the Buddhism exhibition at the British Library yesterday, after being thwarted and delayed by a week's babysitting and a resultant bad cold cultivated in her nursery earlier.

Interesting to see so much of other cultures and how complex it is. Slightly disappointing that so many exhibits were from the last three centuries, considering it goes back around 2,600 years, but I guess not much material has survived.

Bonus was the exhibition book reduced from £25 to £15 at the end.

New series looking at posh porn.....     Didn't John Berger's "Ways of Seeing" cover this as well ?

And she mentions Kathe Kollwitz, a,sadly, little known genius.

Indeed. Went to her gallery in a Berlin a couple of years ago.

There was a decent Kathe Kollwitz exhibition at the British Museum.

Went to see British Baroque at the Tate Britain. Some nice sketchbooks and architectural plans, plus loads of old blokes in wigs and stockings.

Looks interesting.   Whether or not we'll be able to see it is a different  matter.    I've not been to any galleries since they re-opened.   :(

I'd like to go & see this , but at the moment it doesn't seem too advisable  :(       2 hours on a train , then shuffling around the gallery with my glasses misting up because of a facemask.

Thanks for the heads-up, went and saw this yesterday. I was most taken with seeing the lithograph stones for (IIRC) Anna Karenina. They gave a real insight into how the works are produced. Masterful.
