      Event: YBA Gavin Turk Exhibition 2016/17

      Location: Newport Street Gallery, SE11

      Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery is holding a retrospective exhibition on fellow YBA Gavin Turk, his first major solo show since 2002.

      The exhibition draws entirely from Hirst’s collection of Turk’s work, which he began collecting in 1998, and includes many works being exhibited for the first time.

      Turk was one of the artists picked up by Charles Saatchi in the 1990s, and his work was part of Saatchi’s 1997 ‘Sensation’ exhibition at the Royal Academy.

      The museum’s new home, which is situated on the edge of Holland Park, brings it into ‘Kensington’s cultural quarter’, near to the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Art and the Serpentine Gallery.

      Event: Architect Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings

      Location: Serpentine Sackler Gallery, W2

      Zaha Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings is a tribute to the late Anglo-Iraqi architect and, as it turns out, artist to boot, fittingly held in the building she herself converted from an old gunpowder store into a dynamic modern Serpentine gallery, with its free-flowing roof that swoops down to ground level.

    • from 13/01/2017 to 30/01/2017
      Event: Opera: Written on Skin by George Benjamin

      Location: Royal Opera House, WC2

      Written on Skin is a contemporary opera by composer George Benjamin and the playwright Martin Crimp, first performed at the Aix-en-Provence Festival in 2012.

      It is a story about love, passion and violence, drawn from an old Occitan legend about the Catalan troubadour Guilhem de Cabestaing. Legend has it that Cabestaing was killed by his lover’s husband, who then fed his wife Cabestaing’s heart; when she was told what she had just eaten, she threw herself to her death from a high window. Crimp has added a contemporary twist to the libretto, with 21st-century angels watching over the proceedings.
