The Best of the Rest:
Natalia Goncharova at the Tate Modern
What can I expect to see? The Tate Modern has snagged the UK’s first-ever retrospective of the Russian avant-garde artist, and this is a full retrospective in the true sense of the phrase. Goncharova’s work ranged from futurist body art and nude paintings which scandalised Russian high society to costume designs for the Ballets Russes and the theatre.
How long have I got? Until 8 September

Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of Magic at the Wellcome Collection
What can I expect to see? The exhibition covers the range of the history and psychology of magic, from Victorian spiritualism, mediums and séances, to modern magicians’ use of misdirection, and how magicians can influence decision making – or appear to. It also reveals the close link between magic and science; illuminating the ways in which science and psychology have been used to create magic despite apparent tensions between the two.
How long have I got? Until 15 September

Mary Quant at the V&A
What can I expect to see? This is the first exhibition in 50-years to celebrate the iconic work of Dame Mary Quant, and displays over 120 of her original designs, as well as make-up, underwear and even her own brand of doll. Check out our full review here.
How long have I got? Until 20 February 2020
