Culture Calendar #20: Picks For The Week
Wanna know what's on in London this week? Look no further...
w/c 29th May
What: !!! (Chk Chk Chk)
Where: Oval Space
When: Wednesday 31st May
Having featured their ‘The One 2’ single in our singles of the month post from March, we had to pick the formidable !!! at Oval Space this week as one of this week’s unmissable events. Promoting the exceptional new album ‘Shake The Shudder’ and forcing their infectious amalgamation of dance and punk down the throats of anyone and everyone, the band only seems to get better and better.
What: Per Kirkeby: Paintings and Bronzes from the 1980s
Where: Michael Werner Gallery
When: Private View: Thursday 1st June
Promising previously unseen depths of the nuance and practices of painter and sculptor Per Kirkeby, Michael Werner Gallery opens its latest exhibition at their London location on Upper Brook Street. The exhibition will feature over twenty-five paintings and bronze sculptures exploring the intersection of abstraction and the natural world. Accompanying the exhibition catalogue will be an essay by Peter Schjeldahl. The show will continue until 16th September.
Where: Bernard Jacobson Gallery
When: Friday 2nd June
The latest exhibition at Mayfair-based Bernard Jacobson Gallery showcases more than a dozen original works by master painter and draughtsman Matisse. Coinciding with a forthcoming Royal Academy of Arts exhibition entitled ‘Matisse in the Studio’, the gallery promises an intimate and eclectic collection of works by the formidable French artist. The exhibition includes two works in bronze and the sensual ‘Nu aux jambes croisées’. The show continues until 16th September.
Where: O2 Forum Kentish Town
When: Friday 2nd June
‘Money on Me’ ft Anderson .Paak was one of our favourite tracks of last year and 2017 has proved to be another outstanding year for UK duo Snakehips. ‘Don’t Leave’ was another critical success, seeing the queue of big-name musicians who want to work with the Londoners build and build. They take to the O2 in Kentish town this Friday with support from SG Lewis and ROMderful.
What: Field Day 2017
Where: Victoria Park
When: Saturday 3rd June
There were rumblings and whispers long before the announcement was made. Some lauded, some laughed, but it is fair to say Field Day have been making serious waves since their inception 11 years ago and the landmark booking of Aphex Twin makes us wonder how they may ever top it? Saturday sees the festival take its familiar hold of Victoria Park’s grassy knolls with a who’s who of dance music. There are simply too many brilliant acts to see, so embrace it and enjoy.
What: Sundays at Phonox: Goldie
When: Sunday 4th June
We will stop putting Phonox in our culture calendar when they stop picking the crème de la crème of electronic music icons. This week Metalheadz founder Goldie graces the ones and twos for what I am sure will be an expansive drum and bass history lesson. We loved the recent Burial remix of Inner City Life and expect Sunday’s set to be filled with club classics and unreleased gems.
