While some museums remain shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are now reopening as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Prospect Cottage is situated on the expanse of shingle on the coast at Dungeness in Kent, overlooked by a nuclear power station. It was here that the artist and film-maker Derek Jarman lived for the final years of his life, creating a garden that opened directly on to the beach and provided the setting for several of his films, including The Last of England (1987). This exhibition at the Garden Museum (until 20 September) explores the creation of the garden through film, photographs and other archival materials. Paintings and sculptures also reveal the central role of gardening in Jarman’s work throughout his career. Find out more from the Garden Museum’s website.
