Visual Arts: Sargent and the Sea at the Royal Academy. The emotional seascapes and beautifully lit beach scenes are inspiring. I subscribe to get a Friends of the Tate and Friends of the Royal Academy card each year, so I can pop into each gallery often. Also, they both have really nice cafés, so it is a good place to meet for snacks. The Museum of Everything, with Sir Peter Blake's collection of stuff he has found over the years is very sweet and interesting too.

The silliest work in the Anish Kapoor exhibition is a kind of shooting range. A cannon is aimed through one of the Royal Academy's ornate doorways. (The public are safely held back.) Every 20 minutes, an operator loads it with a bucketful of deep red gunk. It fires. The gunk hits the wall through the doorway, dribbles down, piling up at the bottom, with much spatter. This will accumulate over the next three months.
