In Case You Missed It: What Happened in Art, Fashion, Pop Culture
The artist behind Beyoncé’s pregnancy photo shoot; Banksy-inspired afternoon tea in London; David...
Entertainment 06 Feb 2017

January has passed by like a blink of an eye and I don’t believe I have done anything fruitful towards completing my New Year’s resolutions. What’s more, it’s already that time of year again where couples overindulge in PDAs and singles start to despair: Valentine’s Day. Now, while some of you will stock up on heart-shaped chocolates and bottles of prosecco (to either drink alone or for two), here is a quick recap on what occurred last week including a celebrity pregnancy photo shoot to a romance movie about a famed 1960s art couple.
Find out below…
#1  Eat Banksy’s masterpieces at The Rosewood Hotel, London
Rosewood Hotel in London recently launched their permanent “Art Afternoon Tea” this month featuring cakes, tarts, and sandwiches, based on the works of five great masters Yayoi Kusama, Alexander Calder, Damien Hirst, Mark Rothko, and Banksy. So eat your art out at this venue with almost too-pretty-to-eat finger food. These will definitely be Instagram worthy!
#2  Yoko Ono will produce a movie about her and John Lennon
Performance artist and peace activist Yoko Ono has recently teamed up with producer Michael de Luca to create a movie based on Ono’s relationship with the late beloved Beatles icon, John Lennon. It will follow their intense love story and it’ll be written by Anthony McCarten.
#3  The lucky LA artist behind Beyoncé’s dreamy pregnancy photo shoot
Beyoncé took the Internet by storm when she announced she was pregnant with twins on Instagram, clothed in purple and blue underwear, and a green veil. Turns out, that picture became the most liked image on Instagram with over 9 million likes! Later in the week, more photographs emerged. Who shot those dreamlike images? LA-based photographer Awol Erizku. The artist previously collaborated with A$AP Rocky and photographed actress Viola Davis for The New Yorker.
#4  David Hockney redesigns British tabloid logo
Ahead of his retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern in London, David Hockney redesigned the logo of British tabloid The Sun, using his iPad. The new sign now has a hand-drawn sun with black shadows under the logo’s white block letters.
#5  Fashion exhibitions to look forward to in 2017
2017 seems to be a good year for fashion and art considering an array of museums and institutions across the globe will include fashion-related exhibitions. The most noteworthy shows include “Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion” at Victoria and Albert Museum in London starting May 27; “The House of Dior: 70 Years of Haute Couture” at National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne from August 27; a joint exhibition about Yves Saint Laurent will debut this Fall in Paris and in Marrakech at Musée Yves Saint Laurent; and “The World of Anna Sui” at Fashion and Textile Museum in London on 26 May.
