One of the resolutions for this year that anyone should have in plan is to not give up looking for beauty, inspiration and creativity.
That’s why we thought about gathering together 6 exhibitions that are a must see in 2018. Art may perhaps be the simplest way to get rid of everyday routine. Art remains the way to fill your soul of nobles and to go through the new year with fresh and innovative ideas. If you ever need inspiration, surely an art exhibition is the place where you can find your state of well and where you can lose yourself in the fascinating universe of artists. So, if you are a beauty ‘hunter’, here are 6 examples where you can find your free spirit.

Until 7th May, the National Gallery of London is hosting Scotland’s rarely exhibited Burrell Collection, one of the world’s largest holdings of work by Edgar Degas. The exhibition showcases 20 pastels, alongside other Degas works from the museum collection, that depict Degas’s unique take on contemporary Parisian life.

In his work, Edgar Degas is particularly identified with the subject of dance. More than half of his works depict dancers, especially ballerinas. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation.
