A new exhibition opened today at the Dairy Art Centre, of work by Yoshitomo Nara.

If you’re in London any time between now and 7 December, do pay this exhibition a visit, although be aware that the gallery is only open Wednesday to Friday, from 10am to 5pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
