The National Portrait Gallery is an art gallery primarily located in St Martin's Place, off Trafalgar Square in London, but with various satellite outstations located elsewhere in the UK.The gallery opened to the public in 1856. It houses portraits of historically important and famous British people, selected on the basis of the significance of the sitter. The collection includes photographs and caricatures as well as paintings, drawings and sculpture.

d0079151_2411817.jpgNot all of the portraits are exceptional artistically, although there are self-portraits by William Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds and other British artists of note. Some, such as the group portrait of the participants in the Somerset House Conference of 1604, are important historical documents in their own right. Often the curiosity value is greater than the artistic worth of a work, as in the case of the anamorphic portrait of Edward VI by William Scrots, Patrick Branwell Brontë's painting of his sisters Charlotte, Emily and Anne, or a sculpture of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in medieval costume. Portraits of living figures were allowed from 1969.The Gallery moved to its present building north of and adjacent to the National Gallery in 1896.

d0079151_339565.jpg

The Royal Academy was formed to rival the Society of Artists after an unseemly leadership dispute between two leading architects, Sir William Chambers and James Paine. Paine won, but Chambers vowed revenge and used his strong connections with King George III to create a new artistic body, the Royal Academy, in 1768. It was formally launched the following year. Its forty founder members, all admitted on 10 December 1768, included a father/daughter combination (George Michael Moser and Mary Moser) and two sets of brothers (George Dance the Younger and Nathaniel Dance-Holland, and Paul and Thomas Sandby).

d0079151_343255.jpgd0079151_3431767.jpg

The Royal Academy does not receive financial support from the state or crown. One of its principal sources of revenue is hosting temporary public art exhibitions. These are of the highest quality, comparable to those at the National Gallery, the Tate Gallery and leading art galleries outside the United Kingdom. In 2004 the highlights of the Academy's permanent collection went on display in the newly restored reception rooms of the original section of Burlington House, which are now known as the "John Madejski Fine Rooms".
Under the Direction of the Exhibitions Secretary Norman Rosenthal the Academy has hosted ambitious exhibitions of contemporary art including in 1997 "Sensation" the collection of work by young British Artists owned by Charles Saatchi. The show created controversy for including a painting of Myra Hindley that was vandalised while on display.

The ICA is home to the best new art and culture from Britain and around the world.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts was established in 1947 by a collective of artists, poets and writers to showcase and champion contemporary culture across a wide range of art forms. Since its establishment, it has been at the centre of many of the most significant artistic and cultural developments in the past 60 years. It has also introduced numerous artists, performers, writers and other cultural figures to a wider audience, both nationally and internationally.
d0079151_3513198.jpgd0079151_3563731.jpg
Today, the ICA consists of two galleries, two cinemas, a theatre, a bookshop, a bar and café and private function rooms. Its programme covers visual arts, digital arts, music, cinema, talks and educational events. Through the "ICA Club" it provides a forum for the creative industries, providing networking opportunities and a range of organised events. The ICA Bookshop offers a wide range of books, magazines, DVDs and other merchandise both in-store and on line. The ICA's facilities, including two magnificent function rooms, are also available for private hire and events.



Alien Nation 17 November 2006 - 14 January 2007
d0079151_2061127.jpgd0079151_3531567.jpg

d0079151_3535674.jpgFeaturing Laylah Ali, Hamad Butt, Ellen Gallagher & Edgar Cleijne, David Huffman, Hew Locke, Marepe, Henna Nadeem, Kori Newkirk, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Eric Wesley and Mario Ybarra Jr.The first project of its kind, Alien Nation is a timely, ambitious and thought-provoking exhibition co-produced by the ICA and the Institute of International Visual Arts that explores the complex relationship between science fiction, race and contemporary art. In sci-fi cinema of the 1950s and '60s, Cold War fears of invasion, communism and nuclear war were played out in films that projected the anxieties of the present onto the future. In recent years many artists have similarly used science fiction and extra-terrestrial forms to explore racial difference and as a potent metaphor for the threat of the outsider.

5&8 Great New Port Street London WC2H 7HY

The Photographers' Gallery, the first independent gallery in Britain devoted to photography, was founded in 1971 at 8 Great Newport Street. This building now houses the Gallery's primary exhibition space and a bookshop. In 1980 the Gallery also moved into 5 Great Newport Street; initially rented, the freehold was purchased in 1986 thanks to a successful funding campaign.


d0079151_2153668.jpgd0079151_21531769.jpg


The Gallery has developed a reputation as the UK's primary venue for contemporary photography. One of its major achievements has been to establish photography within a wide viewing public, making it more popular and accessible. The gallery was the first in the country to show key names in world photography such as André Kertesz, Jaques-Henri Lartigue and Irving Penn, and has been instrumental in encouraging the inclusion of photography in the programme of leading galleries and museums. An integrated programme of exhibitions and educational events continues to present the most innovative developments in photography as well as nurturing new talent.

Heavily hyped on opening - much was made of the sky-high prices in the Lecture Room restaurant - this unique complex is also home to a tea room, gallery space and an excellent bar which has blossomed into one of the most distinctive drinking spaces in London. Fetchingly attired in neon pink and white, the West bar adjoins the vast East Bar lounge area, which you could mistake for the grand hall of a stately home were it not for the white leather walls and expertly mixed martini in your hand. Each area has its own stylish atmosphere, right down to the memorable egg-shaped toilets. Cocktails are slickly executed and as intoxicating as the design.

宇宙を感じる空間デザイン。”インテリアをシフトする…”、CMでもお馴染みのキメ台詞が、今にも聞こえてきそうなデザイン。コンピュータディスプレイで日産車を閲覧できる。中にはコンセプトカーも。モニターの中で見るという行為がいかにも未来系デジタル社会っぽくて空間に似合っている。こういう物を目にすると、まだ見ぬ未来の技術やデザインがとても楽しみで待ち遠しくなる。
