The strongest impact/ memories/inspirations are not necessarily just based on the works but the context of the visit and many other factors
Turner Margate -the wonderful Turner images, the new building and the dreadful seaside town
Metamorphosis for sadness
Grayson Perry as telling as usual
Nancy Holt images of Westen graves -how lonesome can u get!
Royal Academy Summer -worth it for Norman Ackroyd alone!!
NMAC in Spain as a wonderful art suprise -great art on a golf course/ ex Army camp!!
Kurt Schwitters could paint
Riding down the Thames in the snow to see gorgeous B&W photography of Ansel Adams
The range of prints at Waterprint -interesting
The pleasing, interesting and site specific work in the Hutton building -really good utk.
