Arty Stuff We Forgot About

Just a couple of exhibitions we were meant to tell you about at the end of last week and completely forgot about for obvious reasons.

The first is the fantastic World's Most Photographed at the National Portrait Gallery.

This started last week and it's only £4 to get in so it's well worth it, if only becasue you've got the BBC and the NPG joining forces to present some truly iconic images, so you can't go wrong really.

And these aren't just the same old, tired pictures of people like James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis, there are plenty of "photographs which have previously been lost, suppressed and hidden," in there as well.

The other thing we meant to mention last week was Multiphasic by Brian Love, currently running at the Spectrum Gallery on Great Titchfield Street.

Brian Love was one of the stars of the 2002 BP Portait Prize at the NPG (see, we actually think about how we write these things, it's not all just 'thrown together' at the last minute you know) and this is his first major exhibition in the capital since then.

His work incorporates spray paint alongside more expressionistic landscapes and portraits, so it's pretty varied and it's free to get in, which means you've got no excuse not to pop in.

Worlds Most Photographed runs until 23 October, while Multiphasic finishes on 31 July.
