Art St Kitchen open in Westminster

Thanks to Art St Kitchen for inviting us to try their newly relaunched restaurant serving international cuisine. 🍽🍷😋

The restaurant is located in the heart of London near the Palace of Westminster, Westminster, Big Ben and the Thames. Tucked away, the restaurant is based in a modern building near some of London’s most famous classic streets.

We tasted their sharing dishes including salt beef and gherkin croquettes with parsley and mustard, fried squid… All the dishes have familiar ingredients with their own creative twist!

Our meal was the best way to enjoy diverse and international cuisine. We can’t wait to go back!

Red Bull Music at Notting Hill Carnival on Sunday 26 August 2018

Returning to Notting Hill Carnival for the 10th year with its biggest programme of events to date! Paying respect to Carnival’s rich heritage, prolific present and emerging future. 🎉🎤🔊

Along with hosting an open-to-all sound system on Sunday, Red Bull Music will be teaming up with Mangrove to mark the local mas band’s 40th year anniversary, bringing the biggest float on the carnival parade on bank holiday Monday!

A line-up of dancehall, afro bashment and UK afrobeats biggest names will descend onto Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance Park for the return of the Red Bull Music Sound System. The lineup includes likes of leading UK afrobeats star Maleek Berry, Warning Crew’s First Lady Lisa Mercedez and Leicester-hailing dancehall rapper, Trillary Banks. Afro B and Team Salut will also make their sound system comeback, with their collaborative Afrowave Sound set, joined this year by their very own dance crew.

Designed especially for this year’s parade, Red Bull Music will be partnering with Mangrove to bring their biggest (and loudest) ever float truck to the official carnival route the following day. Alongside hordes of Mangrove dancers, the float will also house performances from the likes of UK carnival mainstays, The Heatwave, Trinidad’s Patrice Rodgers and self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Soca’ Iwer Geroge.

Nøtel: Lawrence Lek & Kode9 at arebyte Gallery until 1 September 2018

Nøtel is an immersive, two-chapter, multimedia installation by London-based artist Lawrence Lek created in collaboration with electronic musician Kode9 (Steve Goodman). The project installation transforms the gallery into a marketing suite for the fictional Nøtel Corporation, advertising future plans for a global expansion of the hotel chain. The exhibition uses similar conventions of property marketing, including a video trailer and virtual reality, to conjure an image of a future luxury hotel as if it will be developed on site. 🌍 🌎 🌏

Set in a future London, where elite society no longer requires permanent housing but rather stays in temporary accommodation, Nøtel speculates on critical issues surrounding the newly-regenerated areas of the capital, including London City Island, where the exhibition’s first iteration is situated. Nøtel uses speculative architecture as a tool to imagine the future of these developments, and to address ideas around the politics of labour and an automated workforce, juxtaposed with notions of alienation and belonging.

Nøtel proposes a globalised, standardised way of living. Its alternative approach would alleviate the overpopulation of cities and the struggles of obtaining property, promoting an economic model which saves money by replacing humans with AI to complete menial tasks. Nøtel exposes the fine line between cost-efficiency and hyper-luxury – after checking in at the Nøtel, residents are left alone, broaching the question of hypothetical social-realism and what luxurious lifestyle means for future generations.

The site-specific installation relates to the rapid transformation of a post-industrial area into a new vision of urban living. The project was co-commissioned with Stroom Den Haag in the Netherlands, integrating ideas about European globalisation and the city’s political culture of international justice and conflict mediation, as well as its cyber security industry. The project will relocate to Stroom in September 2018. In this iteration, Nøtel is upgraded with militarised architectural features and high-tech surveillance, referring to the billion-euro industry under the moniker of Hague Security Delta – a think-tank, consultancy and interest group connecting governments to commercial tech corporations, weapons manufacturers and cyber agencies – at once representing the official future vision for the region and remaining completely invisible in the city’s architecture.

The project continues Lek’s exploration of architectural visualisation as a means to explore the critical and aesthetic issues surrounding urban development. The installation enables visitors to reflect on how digital rendering can manipulate the public’s perception of space.

CEØ statement: “Nøtel Corporation is proud to present our first virtual reality advertisement for the Nøtel, our flagship range of zerø-star™* hotels that embody the concept of fully-automated luxury. Designed by world-leading architects to accommodate today’s global nomads, you can rest assured that your secrecy and security is of the utmost importance. Why not indulge in the intelligent sound system at the piano bar, or bathe in the glow of our thermal spa?”

Picturing Forgotten London at London Metropolitan Archives until Wednesday 31 October 2018

London is a restless city, ever changing and evolving. Cranes and building sites crowd the landscape as new buildings rise. Yet traces of our forgotten past peep through on almost every street, whether intentionally preserved or incidentally left behind. Our exhibition uncovers London’s lost buildings, places that were once the toast of the capital or an important part of everyday life, left behind by successive generations of Londoners. Drawings, engravings, photographs, maps and films sit alongside contemporary recollections and bring together a surprising record of the capital, from the 1500s to the twentieth century. 📷 🗺

Picturing Forgotten London will take you on a journey of discovery through the capital’s past. Meet us at the shot tower next to Waterloo Bridge and travel across the river to The Devil’s Acre, a notorious neighbourhood next to the Palace of Westminster. In the East End we’ll visit the gothic magnificence of Columbia Market in Bethnal Green and encounter London’s first Chinatown in Limehouse. In the west we’ll shop at the Soho Bazaar and ride on the Great Wheel in Earl’s Court, before a night of entertainment at Wyld’s Monster Globe in Leicester Square.

From coaching inns to horse markets, riverside mansions to ragged schools, images created by a wide variety of artists, antiquarians and organisations will appear together for the first time to tell the story of London’s forgotten buildings.
