Attend an evening opening of Zarina Bhimji at the Whitechapel Gallery

Your author dropped in to the Whitechapel Gallery for one of their weekly late openings (Thursdays til 9pm) last week, and apart from being delighted to find one particular book in the bookshop, he was also quite taken by the Zarina Bhimji exhibition which is showing until 9th March.

Ugandan-born Bhimji seems to thrive on creating a real sense of place in her stunning photographs. We are told that this is her first major survey exhibition, tracing 25 years of work and opening with the premiere of her long-awaited film, Yellow Patch, which is inspired by trade and migration across the Indian Ocean.

  1. We've been meaning to get down to this for sometime now; there's been some great reviews on it. Is the Yellow Patch a good watch?
