    Opus Anglicanum: Masterpieces of English Medieval Embroidery

    Known among your friends as the one with obscure knowledge, you are quiet, keenly observant and often nominated as the captain of the pub quiz team.

    The intricate, 13th-century embroidery in Opus Anglicanum: Masterpieces of English Medieval Embroidery at the V&A is the perfect exhibition for someone as keen to learn as you are. The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see an incredible array of surviving examples in one place – some of which have not been displayed in Britain since they were produced.

    You should see


    You are a kind, funny and occasionally lewd person who values friendship above almost anything else. You are fascinated by all people and have many friends from different backgrounds, countries and beliefs.

    You will enjoy the show Flesh at York Art Gallery because it offers a valuable insight into the ways artists have painted people, animals, and their bodies.

    You should see:

    Yves Klein

    You are known to your friends, family and colleagues as a poetic, deep thinker with a slightly aloof character. Your interests are broad and are not concerned with what other people make of you. You would prefer to visit a museum in a smaller city known as much for its art as it is for its music and theatre.

    Yves Klein at Tate Liverpool is perfect for you because the artist was known for going against tradition, for audacious experiments and for his elusive blue monochrome paintings. It is the first UK display of Klein’s work in more than 20 years and brings together major works never before seen here.
