Work, Rest & Play at NG
The National Gallery, London, opened two new exhibitions this month, both free. Scratch The Surface features some nonsense by Yinka Shonibare MBE. This is another slave-trade exhibition, and I'm sure we're all bored with them by now, especially as they keep whitewashing Queen Elizabeth I. The second looks far more interesting: Work, Rest & Play, a touring exhibition which has already been seen at Bristol's City Museum and Art Gallery and the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne. Laura Knight's Ruby Loftus screwing a Breeching-ring (1943) is a gem. Find it in the Sunley Room until 14 October 2007.
