Things to do in London this weekend: 21-23 February
From the reopening of a Michelin-starred restaurant to an empowering new exhibition and the debut performance of a brand-new orchestra, here's what not to miss.
Following on from its Helene Schjerfbeck exhibition last year, the Royal Academy is holding a show of works by another European artist whose work is lauded in his home country but remains almost entirely unknown elsewhere. Belgian artist Léon Spilliaert was, according to the Royal Academy, fuelled by 'existential angst' and his subjects varied from windswept landscapes to unsettling portraits. The exhibition opens this weekend and is a chance to see roughly 80 works by the self-taught artist.
