Mushrooms: The Art, Design And Future Of FungiTake a trip into the weird and wonderful world of mushrooms this winter with Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi. A major new exhibition at Somerset House, the event celebrates the progressive, poetic and psychedelic wonder mushrooms evoke with the works of more than 40 leading artists, designers and musicians exploring its colourful cultural legacy. Artists such as Seana Gavin and Haroon Mirza illustrate the playful side of mushrooms while other highlights include watercolours from renowned author Beatrix Potter, John Cage's limited edition Mushroom Book of recipes, and a look at groundbreaking experiments that are set to utilise mushrooms in exciting new ways such as sustainable shoes and a decomposable mushroom burial suit.
