Acts of Resistance: Photography, Feminisms and the Art of Protest
South London Gallery
8 March — 9 June 2024

A group exhibition organised in collaboration with the V&A, that brings together works by international artists and collectives who are using photography to challenge and move beyond traditional protest documentation. Reflecting on recent events from across the globe, Acts of Resistance explores feminism and activism from an intersectional and highly contemporary perspective.

Visit the nearby Toad, an independent bakery that serves bread, pastries, cakes and sandwiches made fresh on site every day.

Enzo Mari
The Design Museum
29 March – 8 September 2024

Design aficionados will enjoy this major exhibition that celebrates the life and work of one of the greatest Italian designers of the 20th century, Enzo Mari. A significant designer, artist, teacher, theorist and more, Mari's work has inspired generations of creatives and filled the homes of his native Milan and beyond. An outspoken critic of the design industry, his uncompromising belief in the social responsibility of design still resonates powerfully today.

Yoko Ono: Music of the Mind
Tate Modern
15 February — 1 September 2024

Spanning more than seven decades, Yoko Ono: Music of the Mind is the UK’s largest exhibition celebrating key moments in Ono’s groundbreaking, influential and multidisciplinary career. The show traces the development of her practice and explores Ono's career as a trailblazer of conceptual and participatory art, film and performance, a celebrated musician, and a formidable campaigner for world peace.

Combine with a short stroll to Borough Market and visit the newly opened Agora. A Greek restaurant inspired by the lively markets of Athens, Agora offers walk-ins only so be prepared to queue at busy periods.
