Top 5 Museum Exhibitions in London 2015/2016

What’s the best museum exhibition in London? What to see? That’s the questions of who really loves culture, and if you’re one of them just check this arcticle.

5. ZSL Animal Photography Exhibition

The Zoological Society of London’s Animal Photography Prize fills the zoo with spectacular images, with photographers of all experience levels competing for a chunk of the £10,000 prize fund.

The entries will be judged by Kate Humble and Bill Oddie, who we’re assuming were chosen for their animal enthusiasm rather than their art training.

Until 28 February 2016 visitors to ZSL London Zoo will be able to admire the stunning shots entered into the Zoological Society of London’s fourth annual photography competition, displayed in a striking exhibition.

Combining mesmerising imagery with the enthralling sights, and sounds of the creatures at the Zoo, the exhibition is on show within squawking distance of the flamboyant flamingos and picturesque pelicans.

The ZSL Animal Photography Prize Exhibition is free with every standard admission ticket to ZSL London Zoo. With more than 17,000 incredible animals to see and a packed schedule of brilliant talks and demonstrations, ZSL London Zoo makes the perfect autumn day out.

Stories about animals are sometimes far more appealing than those about humans, though many of the most famous ones – Ted Hughes’s ‘Crow’, Aesop’s Fables – are really about the way we interact.

Works by popular nineteenth-century artists including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Richard Redgrave and George Frederic Watts are included, shedding light on the way ‘fallen’ women were understood and mythologised at a time when sexual respectability was highly valued.

2. Celts: Art and Identity

The many tribes of people in Iron Age and Medieval Europe who are known as Celts had one thing in common – producing beautiful art objects, and this exhibition tells their story through intricate jewellery, stylised religious pieces and decorative arts from the late nineteenth century which were inspired by the Celtic designs of the past.
the-best-architecture-of-2015 (5)

This is the first major exhibition to examine the full history of Celtic art and identity, and is organised in partnership with National Museums Scotland. The story unfolds over 2,500 years, from the first recorded mention of ‘Celts’ to an exploration of contemporary Celtic influences. Discover how this identity has been revived and reinvented over the centuries, across Britain, Europe and beyond.

the-best-architecture-of-2015 (7)

Many objects provide clues to and raise questions about Celtic identity. From the depths of the River Thames come magnificent Iron Age treasures such as the Waterloo helmet and Battersea shield. Roman jewellery, early medieval manuscripts and crosses, a Liberty tea set and even a modern football shirt tell a constantly evolving British and Irish story. Major loans, such as the spectacular Gundestrup cauldron, reveal profound cultural connections across Europe.

The fascinating art and history explored in the exhibition have deep resonances for those in Britain, Ireland and the global Celtic diaspora today, influencing everything from music and literature to sport and spirituality.
