Language podcasts

May 17th, 2007

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to speak another language and to use that ability to travel where otherwise the language barrier would not allow? Open Culture have put together a list of¬† language lesson podcasts – I’m going to give Mandarin Chinese Lessons with Serge Melnyk a try.

Anthony Gormley: Blind Light

May 17th, 2007

gormley ghostThe Hayward presents Blind Light, the first major London showing of the work of British sculptor Antony Gormley.

The exhibition features a series of brand new monumental works specially conceived for The Hayward’s distinctive spaces, including one of the largest ever urban public art commissions, Event Horizon, which features sculptural casts of the artist’s body on rooftops and public walkways across central London, dramatically transforming the city skyline.

These new works, including a spectacular series of suspended figures created in light-infused webs of steel, are shown alongside a selection of works from the last three decades.

Exhibition opens today and runs until the 19th August.
