Anish Kapoor 2

In September, I wrote here about the exhibition of the work of Anish Kapoor at the Royal Academy. I went back last week for a second visit, this time with Lizzy Clark. Such has been the buzz around this exhibition that the queue stretched out of the doors and right across the courtyard. Inside, it was even busier and livelier than when we saw it in September, possibly helped by the excellent BBC Imagine programme – which is still available to view on BBC iPlayer here.

The exhibition has now closed but Charlotte Higgins has a piece in the Guardian today and reports….. “Since it opened in September, 275,000 people have visited, making it the most successful exhibition ever by a living artist in London”.

Photographs from the exhibition can bee seen here.

In the Imagine programme viewers got a tantalising glimpse of a new project by Kapoor at Kaipara Bay, New Zealand. There was great colour photograph in the Guardian yesterday, spread over two pages, of this enormous piece. You can see more photos here,
