The Tate modern is a name which is synonymous with art in the UK, and is ideal if you are on the hunt for things to do in London.
Hardly a week goes by when an exhibition or artist associated with the Tate is not in the headlines, and this week is no exception.

Her exhibition runs from April 17th until October 20th and features modernist paintings by the artist.
It is the first time that Choucair has had work displayed in the UK and is the first time she has been widely recognised for her pieces.
