The cultural spectrum

I spent the day in central London with my sister Silvia who was down from Leicester and, as always, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of our time was passed at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Here we started by viewing the Islamic Gallery which houses over 400 objects, including ceramics, textiles, carpets, metalwork, glass and woodwork, including the Ardabil carpet of 1539-40.
Then we visited “Kylie – The Exhibition” which focuses on the evolving image of Kylie Minogue and features performance costumes (including those gold hotpants), accessories, album covers and photographs, set against a backdrop of music and video.
Both exhibitions are wonderful, but what a cultural contrast …
