This year Tate Modern celebrates the life of the famous British director Steve McQueen in a major exhibition with video and film installations.

The last 25 years of his career are displayed in a series of provocative and poignant images that will immerse the viewer in the artist’s world. If you are a movie lover don’t miss this exhibition and be inspired by McQueen’s career and influential work. 

Saatchi Gallery this year celebrates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun tomb in an impressive collection of artifacts from ancient Egypt. The mystery of the pharaoh is coming to London for the first time before going back to Egypt forever.
