Free Art in London

Our selection of the best exhibitions and art pieces in London - and best of all, it's free.

1. Yayoi Kusama, The Passing Winter
Starting with Yayoi Kusama's cubed sculpture, through peering into the cut-out holes the viewer sees a unique perspective of the art depending on the surroundings of the room and the light conditions. Find it on the 2nd floor of the Tate's Boiler House, and be transported into an infinite world of abstract shape, colour and light.

2. The Graphic Art of Harry Potter
Alternatively, if you find yourself around Soho this weekend you can immerse yourself in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. The graphic artists who created a large portion of the movie's artworks are showcasing key pieces from potion packaging to wizarding literature at this free exhibition at their studio MimaLima. The display has just two weeks left until it closes, so grab some floo powder and get down there.

 

3. Richard Serra
The Gagosian Gallery currently houses labyrinth-like steel structures by Richard Serra. Visitors are encouraged to walk through the large-scale sculptures and explore their shape and scale. The gallery is worth a visit itself, it's a beautiful art space that offers escapism from the crazyiness of Kings Cross.

4. Zaha Hadid
The Serpentine Gallery presents an exhibition with a difference - paintings, drawings and sketches by architect Zaha Hadid. Widely recognized as one of the most creative and pioneering architects of our time, this exhibition celebrates Hadid's artistry beyond bricks and mortar.
