I visited this on saturday night with my fiancee. We went in the evening, which turned to have a lot less people. I hadn't been to an exhibition in the evening before, but I'll definitely start now.
The exhibition was of a good size, easily over a a couple of hours' worth. The lighting was good and the objects (paintings, photographs, cameras, etc.) were suitably spaced out, so there was no crowding. The exhibits were interesting, some of them I had seen in other museums but others were a revelation to me. There were lots of studies and sketches for paintings that were present as well, which I always find fascinating.
The price was not ridiculous at £14 for an adult, which is actually slightly below the normal price for a big exhibition of this type.
An exhibition like this, with this range of objects for a single artist does not come along very often, so it was definitely worth it.
As I type this, this exhibition is now finished but it was wonderful and I hope more of you got a chance to see it.
