VISIT YOUR FAVOURITE MUSEUM
Many museums in your town offer virtual visits and even got the ones you always wanted to visit . For example, the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam offers visual tours through their collection, children’s home schooling lessons, tutorial painting classes and even has an online book club to make the most of your time at home.
We love the aspect of learning more and widen the horizon if travels are limited and museums are always a fun address to get distracted and feel like being in Provence for example, when looking at Van Gogh’s drawings from the South of France.
If you are a creative soul searching for inspiration and art news, we suggest the series of podcasts by The Art News. Select the topic you are interested in and take an hour a day to get into the international art world without leaving the house.
CURRENT GALLERY SHOWS
You might not be able to fly to the Reopening of Sarah Lucas current show at the Sadie Coles HG in London this week but be present virtually .
The show of new works by the British artist includes contorted, surreal female figures that are part of the artist’s Bunny series, which twist and bend around chairs and plinths “in states of abandon and vulnerability”, says a gallery statement.
