With Easter weekend behind us, many will be eager to find out what else is going on during the month of April. There are plenty of events taking place in London, just in time for the spring sun. 

Steve McQueen: ‘Grenfell’ 

Steve McQueen is an Oscar-winning director and artist who captured drone footage of Grenfell Tower six months after it was set ablaze. This film, which has been described as ‘heart sinking and dizzying’, shows contrasts between the untouched English countryside, the busyness of London, and finally, what’s left of Grenfell Tower. This film is meant to capture the brutality of this tragedy, highlighting just how life altering it was for so many. If you’re interested in watching this film, tickets are free and it is being shown in the Serpentine South Gallery in Hyde Park from the 7th of April to the 10th of May.

Forms of Life, Tate Modern

The Tate Modern welcomed a brand new exhibition on the 20th April, which features works by Hilma af Klint and Piet Mondrian. Both of these artists are well loved for their abstract approaches to the canvas and their use of vibrant colours and grids. These two artists share similar evolution stories and both take inspiration from ecology and nature. If you’re a fan of abstract art, then you’ve got until the 3rd of September to stop by and take a look around this unusual exhibition.
