Top Art Things To See and Do In April

Looking for things to do this month? Look no further, here are my recommendations

Paul Strand
Exhibition, V& A, until 3rd July www.vam.ac.uk

This exhibition is a major retrospective of work by the American photographer. For anyone interested in fine art photography this is a must see, as Strand’s images have defined the ways in which the medium is understood today. The exhibition displays around 200 objects which span Strand’s entire career. This includes his experimentations with abstract imagery.
