426㎡ at StolenSpace Gallery until 29 April 2018

A group show featuring the creative talents from skateboarding and beyond. ‘426㎡’ will dissect and explore the ever present relationship between skateboarding and art, giving us an intimate look at it’s DIY nature. 🤟

There is little wonder why so many skateboarders make art. Both outlets serve similar purposes, they offer the access to freedom of expression and can both be solitary activities; the onus is on you to create, nobody else. ‘426㎡’ is a reflection of the community itself. The work conveys a diverse understanding of what it means to make art and how we as skateboarders don’t limit ourselves to any medium or subject matter. From Arran Gregory’s abstract use of geometry to Jon Horner’s playful characters, the art of skateboarding is as multifaceted as the culture that inspires it. ‘426㎡’ will display this diversity of creation in a two week exhibition, showcasing some of the most well respected artists and illustrators from skateboarding and beyond.

Contributing artists; Andrew Pommier, Arran Gregory, Artista, Ben Gore, Blondey McCoy, Chet Childress, D*Face, Darren John, Domas Glatkauskas, Ed Templeton, Eloise Dorr, Fos, Ged Wells, Glen Fox, Goldie, Gregory Conroy, Gaurab Thakali, Haroshi, Jack Pearce, James Jarvis, Jeremy Jones, Jon Horner, Liisa Chisholm, Lucas Beaufort, Luka Pinto, Mark Gonzales, Matthew Bromley, Nick Jensen, Oko, Pontus Alv, Rainyrainforest, Shepard Fairey, Will Sweeney, Zin V.

Ted Baker: Colour By Numbers at Old Street pop-up until Friday 4 May 2018

In the beating heart of East London, Ted Baker is bringing his latest Colour By Numbers collection to life with an immersive pop-up experience.

Situated inside the bustling Old Street Station complex, which is home to a thriving community of pop-up shops, established retail businesses and lively cafes and bars.

Complementing this energetic environment is a full schedule of events and activity including restorative yoga classes and enlightening discussion events with fashion influencers Freddie Harrell and Megan Ellaby, as well as partnerships with independent food and drink businesses, including local coffee house Shoreditch Grind.

Celebrating simple silhouettes and considered colourways, Ted’s Colour By Numbers curated collection for women reworks timeless patterns in a directional approach unlike anything the brand has created before.

Using contemporary art galleries as its starting point, the pop-up employs a clean, monochrome colour scheme with translucent opalescent panels laid out in a graphic zigzag pattern. This thoroughly modern use of materials and shapes creates a fresh, serene backdrop for the vibrant new Colour by Numbers collection, and as with an actual art gallery, allows the dynamic feel and quirky detail of each piece to shine and be appreciated in full.

Wednesdays, Yoga with Chromayoga
– Multi-sensory yoga experience combining light and colour therapy techniques
– Blue (for boosting productivity) and Yellow (with twists to open posture) yoga sessions from 7:30am

Julius Caesar at Bridge Theatre until 15 April 2018

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. 🎖

Bridge Theatre’s auditorium is transformed for Nicholas Hytner’s promenade staging of Shakespeare’s political thriller.

You can choose from two ways of experiencing the production: sit in-the-round and look onto the arena, or become part of the action and join the crowd of hundreds that stand amongst the street party greeting Caesar’s triumphant return to Rome, the congress that witnesses his murder and the civil war that erupts in the wake of his assassination.

Ben Whishaw and Michelle Fairley play Brutus and Cassius, leaders of the coup, David Calder plays Caesar and David Morrissey is Mark Antony, who brings Rome back under control after the conspirators’ defeat.

Marianna Simnett and Ericka Beckman at Zabludowicz Collection until 8 July 2018

British artist Marianna Simnett creates fable-like film, performance, sound and light installations that examine the sense of intimacy yet anxious unfamiliarity we experience with our own bodies. She particularly focuses on the means we deploy to control these bodies, both technological and cultural. The exhibition presents a group of recent work from the Zabludowicz Collection: three films The Udder (2014), Blood (2015), and Blue Roses (2016) – installed as a trilogy for the first time – alongside a sound and light installation Faint with Light (2016).

Simnett’s films unfold from multiple, occasionally impossible perspectives (from within dreams or personifying internal organs), reflecting the fluidity of our identities as they are embodied and performed. Consistently working with untrained actors, many of the individuals Simnett meets through her research become collaborators, performing heightened versions of themselves within the films. Her works often provoke a visceral reaction, featuring unflinching depictions of many commonplace phobias such as needles, cockroaches, blood, and of medical procedures which the artist has herself undergone. They present the body as both monstrous and clinical, combining scientific description with the cathartic fantasy of musicals and horror genres. Simnett writes songs, performed by her cast, that lend an air of innocence and lightness to her densely layered storytelling.

Simnett’s works seek to create in-between states that defy and threaten easy categorisation by the patriarchal social structures that govern our bodies and identities. It’s an approach that throws into doubt binary categories such as innocence and cruelty, purity and contamination, desire and revulsion, and even life and death.

Marianna Simnett opens alongside a solo exhibition by American artist Ericka Beckman. The exhibitions continue the Collection’s 2018 focus on artists’ film and video examining ideas of embodiment and performance of identity in relation to technology. Beckman and Simnett have each established unique approaches to storytelling that draw upon fairy tale archetypes and their works share an interest in how gender is constructed and its relationship to mechanisms of desire and capitalist consumption. Their works reflect the impact of new technologies – robotics, virtual reality, bio-medical – on both the built environment and subjectivity. In addition, both artists have developed distinctive uses of sound in their work as a pre-linguistic tool for communication. They utilise tropes of the musical, from the abstract repetitions and rhythms of playground chants and nursery rhymes, to the cathartic effect of song as a narrative device.

In her first major solo exhibition in the UK, Zabludowicz Collection is pleased to present four seminal works from the Collection by American artist Ericka Beckman that span over 30 years of genre-defying filmmaking. Beckman’s work consistently treats film as a performance medium, and draws on the pioneering energy of her years at CalArts and the do-it-yourself sensibilities of New York’s Downtown Scene in the late 1970s and early 80s. It also astutely anticipates the social and cultural impact of video gaming and online networks over recent decades. Shot on 16mm, with all the animation and visual effects being constructed in camera through multiple exposures, Beckman’s films create narratives using the pedagogic and competitive structures of games. They playfully reveal the conditions of gender and identity formation in relation to labour, leisure, architecture and capital.

Isle of Dogs the exhibition at The Store until 5 April 2018

The hand-crafted sets of Wes Anderson’s dystopian film Isle of Dogs giving you a chance to explore his vision of Japan in 20 years time. 🇯🇵 🌆

Anderson’s fictional city, Megasaki, along with its autocratic puppet mayor, Kobayashi, a man with a vendetta against dogs. In the stop-motion animation, Kobayashi exiles all canines to Trash Island – on show in all its rubbish-laden glory – where they form clans and fight for food. Meanwhile the mayor’s 12-year-old nephew embarks on a mission to save his beloved dog Spot and turn around the fortunes of all his furry friends.

17 original sets take over the ground floor of The Store. These meticulously crafted visions of Japanese culture are a model architecture-lover’s dream – the towering metropolis has been created in extraordinary detail, down to pot plants and the requisite red lanterns. There’s even a wood-panelled bar, stocked with medically enhanced sake. Meanwhile, you can almost spell the festering rubbish on Trash Island.

Food (Japanese Ramen) and drink will be available to purchase from the ‘Noodle Bar’ from midday. Sake cocktails and bar snacks available during late night openings on Thursday/Friday.
