There's something in the wind... and it's not that spine-chilling breeze. October, the tenth (we repeat; tenth!) month of the year has arrived and we're anticipating it to be a big one. As the first month where we can properly celebrate a festive holiday since what feels like the dawn of time, take it as a marker that things are finally on the up.

Another signifier of such is the amount of cultural events happening this month. From exhibits honouring one of Britain's best designers to those honouring particular cinematic aesthetics, there's more than enough to dig your teeth into.

Annie Morris at Timothy Taylor London
Coinciding with Annie Morris' first solo museum exhibition in the UK at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Timothy Taylor will also be presenting a selection of her work in London. Drawing on her own memories and experiences whilst also delving into the subconscious, Annie's sculptures, drawings and tapestries are jewel-toned creations that dissect issues of motherhood, creative rebirth and the female form. 

Annie Morris opens on 6th October till 13th November 2021 at Timothy Taylor London, 15 Bolton St, London W1J 8BG.

The Conran Effect at The Design Museum
Many will be familiar with the Conran Shop, which has become a retail institute for homeware since its inception, but many do not know much about the man behind the brand. The soon to open exhibition at the Design Museum can remedy that. This free exhibition, which opens on what would have been Sir Terence Conran's 90th birthday, explores his extraordinary achievements and how they've influenced our concept of design today. 

The Conran Effect opens 4th October at The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, London W8 6AG.

Accidentally Wes Anderson at The Old Bank Vault
Following on from the success of last years exhibit, the famed Accidentally Wes Anderson IG account has collaborated with The Old Bank Vault on another exhibition, just in time to celebrate the launch of the highly anticipated film The French Dispatch. Along with new prints on display that specifically evoke a 70s atmosphere into the space, viewers will be able to to get involved by solving puzzles, writing postcards and capturing their time spent in AWA’s retro world.

Accidentally Wes Anderson opens 16th October till 7th November, at The Old Bank Vault, 283 Hackney Rd, London E2 8NA.
