Titans of Style  - David Niven

When one thinks of Old Hollywood glamour, the image of actor David Niven is never very far away. Niven was a much-adored icon, and, we might add, one of the most suave men of his generation, or any generation for that matter, thanks to his astute eye for sartorial finesse. Therefore, Niven deservedly takes his place in our Titans of Style series.

Exhibition of the Month: Women in Revolt - Tate Gallery, London

The Tate Gallery in London has orchestrated a profound symphony of empowerment through its groundbreaking exhibition, "Women in Revolt." Spanning across mediums and generations, this exhibition boldly showcases the unyielding spirit and resilience of women who have challenged societal norms, shattered glass ceilings, and paved the way for future generations. From the bold strokes of Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits to the raw intensity of Kara Walker’s silhouettes, each artwork serves as a testament to the power of artistic expression in challenging the status quo. The exhibition is a multifaceted dialogue on the complexities of female identity and resistance, with one of the standout pieces being Judy Chicago’s iconic installation, "The Dinner Party," which celebrates the legacies of women throughout history. Set against a backdrop of intricately crafted porcelain plates, each representing a significant female figure, the artwork serves as a powerful reminder of the often-overlooked contributions of women to art, science, and culture. A must-see next time you're in London!
