Free entry

Red Bull Studio Collectives series launches with a focus on bringing artists together in a cross-disciplinary project. Collectives sees artists select a young collaborator to work with and, combining creative minds both emerging and established, together they are challenged to create unique and exciting pieces of art that push limitations and provoke viewers. Based across three east London locations with one-of-a-kind collaborative installations for you to experience.

Leif Podhajsky and Eva Papamargariti @ Hoxton Gallery
(28th January – 8th February)

Combining their common interests, Leif and Eva are using their partnership to explore the individualism of interpretation in relation to visual language. Pursuing a symbiosis between Eva’s digital techniques and Podhaisky’s trademark patterns; “The Language of dreams” explores the meaning of a visual language, bringing to life thoughts, ideas and dreams through visual manifestations.

Alice Dunseath and Matteo Mastrandrea @ DreamBagsJaguarShoes
(28th January – 13th March)
Expanding on their own individual projects, Matteo and Alice have drawn influence from Object Oriented Ontology, a philosophy based on the idea that everything is connected, contrary to the egocentrism of humanity. In a room filled with the central colours of the spectrum, one can ponder one’s place within the web of existence, while experiencing some of Dunseath’s crystal formations taking on a life of their own.

Netta Peltola and Hortense Duthilleux @ No. 90
(29th January – 9th February)

“Latitude’ utilises No. 90 as a public space, remaining open to all for the exhibition’s duration. With this organic flow, the installation will respond to the relative amount of energy and collective movement within the space at any one time, revealing and concealing fragments of choreographed light. Using the passage of the sun as a means to express energy throughout the course of the day, ’Latitude’ creates an immersive, interactive space.

Tickets: £28.83 (Ceilidh only) £47.66 (three course meal, drink, show) book online

Bring your squeeze, bring your kilt, bring your granny, bring your dancing shoes, Burns Baby Burns invites you to celebrate Scotland’s finest in some style, right in the heart of Hackney.

Returning bolder and more flamboyant for 2016 from the heart of the most vibrant corner of East London – where whisky and poetry flow in glorious Hackney-esque harmony and the rafters and floorboards will be thunderously shaken, all in glorious celebration of Scotland’s answer to the Lord Almighty, Robert Burns.

On a mission to blow away the dust from more traditional Burns nights and truly honouring and celebrating the spirit of the great poet, Burns Baby Burns takes place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd January over Burns’ night weekend and is a massive immersive party night, bedecked in tartan and tam o’shanters, all held in passionate celebration of the late great orator, poet, songster and break dancing free radical Robert Burns.

The event will be hosted by the incomparable Scottish Bard and Wildman Phil Kay while the Ceilidh Liberation Front will provide the musical entertainment – all set in the resplendent glory of St. John’s at Hackney Church.

Burns Baby Burns gives partygoers the best chance in London town to enjoy a multitude of toasts of fine scotch and whisky, while taking in the gorgeous views from the enormous balcony. With face painting and readings of Burns literature to get all fired up in style.

This will be followed by a three-course sit down banquet on tables as far as the ‘aye can see. The clearing of the desserts sees the Ceilidh Liberation Front take centre stage, for the wildest ceilidh south of South Lanarkshire. Giant haggis will be piped, fire danced, drams raised, sporrans polished, lassies toasted, dosies do’ed, willow’s stripped and homage paid in the most fantastical of styles to the bard of Ayrshire Rabbie Burns.

Audiences are invited to celebrate the finer things in life, culminating in a medieval rave uniting young and old in joyful abandonment. Guests are encouraged to wear traditional Scottish attire, underwear optional!!!

Ticket includes:

  • Three-course traditional Scottish feast served on china plates, no less
  • A complimentary dram of whisky
  • Spectacle rituals of poetry, reading & song
  • Ceilidh dancing into the night
  • Entry to the VIP balcony whisky bar
  • A cuddle with Rabbie
