Halloween Zombie Apocalypse @ Bounce Farringdon / Saturday 31st October 2015


Doors: until 2am

@ Bounce, 121 Holborn, London EC1N 2TD

Tickets: free entry all night (guest list closes at 11pm) no bookings necessary after 11pm until 2am


Bounce Farringdon managed to save 350 death defying revellers last year, after it was announced that the same magnified UV rays used in the venue repelled the Zombie species, with prolonged exposure potentially causing their cells to explode!

Bio scientists have warned that almost like clockwork, a horde of Zombies will be returning to London on Halloween and with limited options to guarantee safety from the Zombie Apocalypse, signing up to the guest list is the only option to improve your chance of survival.

Free entry and enough stockpiled food and drink to keep all alive all night. After 11pm all ping pong tables will be free to play on with no booking necessary!

UV face painters will be onsite to make you look luminous in the UV Bunker – and for those who’ve made an extra effort, there will be special gory cocktail prizes for the best Halloween UV outfit.

There will also be gruesome Games Gurus gliding around, handing out tips and tricks on ping pong and how to stay alive…

Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World @ Tate Britain / until 25th October 2015


Doors: 10am – 6pm

@ Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG

Tickets: £16.30 book online


One of the leading sculptors of the 20th century. This retrospective of one of Britain’s greatest artists features many of her most significant and beautiful sculptures in wood, stone and bronze alongside rarely seen works.

Barbara Hepworth was born in Yorkshire in 1903. She lived in Cornwall since 1939 and has become principally associated with the art of St Ives and with the sea and landscape of that place. This exhibition presents her in a broader light and spans her whole career.

Hepworth emerged in the late 1920s as a leading member of a new generation of sculptors. Her work became increasingly abstract in the 1930s and, after moving to Cornwall, she began to make sculpture in terms of her experience of landscape. She continued to carve throughout her life, but from 1956 she also made works in bronze which allowed her to produce more and which were better suited to international travel.

This exhibition traces Hepworth’s growing international success offering fresh ways of thinking about her art. Uniquely, this retrospective also plays with the different spaces in which Hepworth presented her work – the show includes an impressive reconstruction of a modernist structure to showcase Hepworth’s ‘ideal’ environment. Among the highlights are four large sculptures in sumptuous African hardwood – the high point in her post war carving career – reunited in one room.

The ancient Persian ruins of Persepolis were a spectacular backdrop for ‘one of the most adventurous and idiosyncratic festivals in the world’ (Artforum). The Festival of Arts was held around Shiraz, Iran every summer from 1967–1977.

A melting pot of traditional and avant-garde music, theatre and performance, the festival featured artists from both East and West, including the Beatles’ muse, sitar player Ravi Shankar and American composer John Cage, alongside Rwandan drummers and Balinese Gamelan musicians and dancers. Orghast,
a play by poet Ted Hughes and Mahin Tajadod, co-directed by Peter Brook, was staged, while Merce Cunningham’s dancers performed calisthenics among the ruins of Persepolis.

The festival came to an end with the Iranian revolution, but is now brought to life through this display of archive film and photographs, original theatre programmes and posters seen for the first time in the UK.

Joseph Cornell: Wanderlust @ Royal Academy of Arts / until 27th September 2015

From a basement in New York, Joseph Cornell channelled his limitless imagination into some of the most original art of the 20th century. Step into his beguiling world at this landmark exhibition.

Cornell hardly ventured beyond New York State, yet the notion of travel was central to his art. His imaginary voyages began as he searched Manhattan’s antique bookshops and dime stores, collecting a vast archive of paper ephemera and small objects to make his signature glass-fronted ‘shadow boxes’.

These miniature masterpieces transform everyday objects into spellbinding treasures. Together they reveal his fascination with subjects from astronomy and cinema to literature and ornithology and especially his love of European culture, from the Romantic ballet to Renaissance Italy.

Wanderlust brings together 80 of Cornell’s most remarkable boxes, assemblages, collages and films, some never before seen outside the USA. Entirely self-taught, the independence of Cornell’s creative voice won the admiration of artists from Marcel Duchamp and the Surrealists, to Robert Motherwell and the Abstract Expressionists, with echoes of his work felt in Pop and Minimalist art.

A candid exploration of the most publicly discussed of private acts. Undress your mind and join us to investigate human sexuality at ‘The Institute’, the first of our longer exhibitions. Featuring over 200 objects spanning art, rare archival material, erotica, film and photography, this is the first UK exhibition to bring together the pioneers of the study of sex.

From Alfred Kinsey’s complex questionnaires to the contemporary National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal), ‘The Institute of Sexology’ investigates how the practice of sex research has shaped our ever-evolving attitudes towards sexual behaviour and identity. Moving between pathologies of perversion and contested ideas of normality, it shows how sex has been observed, analysed and questioned from the late 19th century to the present day.

‘The Institute of Sexology’ tells the complex and often contradictory story of the study of sex through its pioneers, including Magnus Hirschfeld, Sigmund Freud, Marie Stopes, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Mead, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, and the team behind Natsal. It highlights the profound effect that the gathering and analysis of information can have in changing attitudes and lifting taboos.

The show features contemporary artworks exploring sexual identity by artists Zanele Muholi, John Stezaker, Sharon Hayes and Timothy Archibald. A new commission by artist Neil Bartlett will revisit the sex survey, joining visitors with the hundreds of thousands of anonymous participants whose personal accounts underpin the study of sex.

Agnes Martin is perhaps most recognised for her evocative paintings marked out in subtle pencil lines and pale colour washes. Although restrained, her style was underpinned by her deep conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art. Martin believed that spiritual inspiration and not intellect created great work. ‘Without awareness of beauty, innocence and happiness’ Martin wrote ‘one cannot make works of art’.
