Japan has broken the Guinness World Record for the world’s smallest book, creating a book with pages the size of the eye of a needle.
Hong Kong artist Michael Lau is exhibiting his classic Gardenergala figures at the Sejong Center for Performing Arts.
New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is gearing up for a celebration of punk fashion.
World Monuments Fund has revealed that they have received a US grant to help preserve the historical Thai city of Ayutthaya.
BLASTED: has not been performed in London for nearly a decade but with Sean Holmes’ production at the Hammersmith Lyric it seems it has finally found a suitable home with a terrific cast to boot. Let’s just hope that this play continues to amass the recognition it rightly deserves.
WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING: This company shows that there is just as much to glean from the making of art and theatre as there is from the work of art itself. They created their own opportunity; they made their own play; they told their own story; and they did so in a way and in an environment that achieved an all-too rare sense of collectivity among a bunch of individuals.
SUNDAY: Descending into an industrial alley to find the concrete refuge feels raw and arguably more interesting than the more polished events. The expansive interior is an ideal backdrop for the diverse work, which is found inside.
HOUDINI: Was an enigma in his own time and the mysterious circumstances of his premature death have launched numerous conspiracy theories that linger to this day.
MARK RONSON: The set started with a catchy but alien instrumental track, “Circuit Breaker”, typifying Ronson’s new sound. Old favourites were not forgotten; one of Ronson’s enduring partnerships is with Phantom Planet frontman Greenwald, and their collaborative cover of Radiohead’s “Just”, is one of Version’s strongest legacies.
BLACK HISTORY MONTH: These exhibitions focus on the stories of individuals, which is incredibly moving, as we get a glimpse into hardships that could so easily be avoided. They are a good supplement to the International Slavery Museum, which documents a much-publicised history of the abuse of previous generations.
LES MISERABLES: It’s worth the ticket price just to hear Owen Jones sing ‘Bring Him Home; and if you aren’t, at the very least, blinking furiously by the end then make an appointment at your local hospital to get the stone surgically removed from the place where your heart should be.
CHANGE: The painting is in Eine’s signature font – making it instantly recognisable as his work. The mural stretches 21 metres long in letters 2.4 metres high and Eine has carried out the commission free of charge for the Flavasum Trust.
SCORCHED: A succulent story of mystery and revelation, aptly served in the enigmatic atmosphere of the Old Vic Tunnels, and garnished with the always-popular topic of war and its irreparable effects on the human condition.
THE FUTURE CAN WAIT: returns with a disturbing selection of works, encompassing performance, video, site-specific installation and painting.
POETIC INSPIRATIONS: The show contains drawings inspired by the great Syrian poet Adonis and by ‘Song for an Equinox’, one of St John Perse’s last poems. Other drawings invoke poems by the late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, glorifying the love of Mother Earth.
GLITCH: As well as continuing to work with long standing motifs such as isometric cubes and freeform geometric structures, James Ryan has introduced commercial patterned fabrics as painting supports which extend the readings of his work.
APOLLO: This show returns the music to its original conception - as a counterpart to NASA footage from the Apollo programme, which is projected on a big screen above the performers - matching the mesmerising beauty and tranquil mystery of the moon and earth, and the dizzying scale and humbling feat of engineering involved in taking people to the moon.
Rachael Purdy is a self employed and freelance animator based in the UK who travels worldwide with her work.
“MONIKER: will introduce to London a welcome alternative to the familiar grind of the art fair season taking a more personal approach while highlighting the work of a generation of artists often overlooked in British mainstream fairs, though widely acclaimed by museums and top art institutions throughout the world” - Frankie Shea, co-director of MONIKER.
PICTURE THIS: Throughout July and August Picture This is hosting artist Linda Quinlan and writer Dominic Paterson. These residencies offer the time and space to focus on development of new work within the supportive context of Picture This.
