It’s been a good winter for art in London this year – I can’t recommend highly enough the Cezanne portraits at the NPG, the two Opera and Balenciaga shows at the V&A or the Scythians at the BM – but the Rachel Whiteread at Tate Britain was actually rather a disappointment for such a talented artist who previously did a well-displayed installation at Tate Modern just along the river.
Instead, I say keep your visit to the ever excellent permanent collection (free), especially the wonderful Henry Moore rooms (free!), and if you want some Whiteread, this gummy bear piece in the main upstairs hall that is currently turned over to sculpture (all free).
You’re getting the point…save your £15 and just enjoy the permanent show!
