Into The Night

I went to London recently for a few days, visiting the galleries.  The outstanding expo was at the Barbican – Into The Night   where you may, “Explore the history of cabarets, cafés and clubs in modern art across the world, from London to Paris, Mexico City, Tehran, and Ibadan”.  A large show with lots of inspiring images.
