Last Friday evening was a pre-exams, post-assignments opportunity to take a break and head into Central for some Renaissance and refreshment.
Every last Friday of the month, public museums and art galleries all over London open their doors (and their bars) for extended hours to the public. Evenings include live music, workshops, additional exhibitions, ans innovative perform art. We spent the majority of the evening on the patio enjoying a mini-lecture about upcoming DNA technology and a performance art piece where “musical” DNA was released into the audience via bubbles. Yup, you read that right – shiny, soapy, floating BUBBLES. I think I can still hear Beethoven’s 5th in my hair follicles.
Suffice it to say, these Friday Late events are a great escape from the academic pressure that inspires!
