Beer lovers are invited to try one of the kegs with expertly curated food pairings at a special event.

Guests are able to help the team operate on their very own Brooklyn Brewery corpse in a grown up game of ‘Operation’, removing a selection of offal-based dishes, prepared Yakitori style, and pairing these with a taster of Cloaking Device to emphasise key flavours and characteristics of the beer itself. 🍻🍺

This month sees the release of Brooklyn Brewery’s Cloaking Device in the UK, a rare and unique aged porter created by award-winning brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his barrel-aging team. This limited-edition beer is part of Brooklyn Brewery’s continued experimentation and innovation with beer, known as their ‘quarterly experiments’.

Cloaking Device(ABV 10.5%), stands as a tribute to the porters of the past. A strong porter brewed with the Brettanomyces yeast strain, the beer is aged for nine months in French oak red wine barrels, hand-bottled and re-fermented in the bottle with champagne yeast. The resulting drink is a versatile companion for food including barbecued venison or dry-aged steak and hearty cheese, boasting earthy aromas, a thrilling rush of cacao-like fruitiness, hints of vanilla and pineapple, a touch of acidity, an underlying forest-floor funk and the powerful murmur of French oak barrels. The beautifully dry finish then cuts through and provides the element of surprise to the palate – the true power of Cloaking Device.

East London’s Hang-Up Gallery are exclusively launching the new collection of works by Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels from Hip-Hop’s most notorious band, Run-DMC. The Art of DMC is the icon’s inaugural London exhibition and will host the new and unseen collection of ‘Darryl Makes Comics (DMC)’ Fine Art, a body of signed limited edition prints borne out of his love and deep passion for comics.

Darryl McDaniels is best known as the co-founding member of ‘Run DMC’. One of the major pioneers of hip-hop culture and arguably THE hottest rap act of the 1980s and 1990s, they are still loved today by millions around the world.

Comics and their superhero characters have always played a huge part in DMC’s life. In fact, many of the stories and speeches made by his favourite comic characters are the inspiration for his lyrics later created for Run DMC.

“I was a nervous little nerdy kid,” DMC says. “I didn’t want to get up in front of y’all and rhyme but then what gave me confidence out there on stage was pretending that I was the Hulk on the microphone.”

DMC, the debut title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980’s NYC. Featuring collaborations with some of the hottest talent in comics and illustration today, a cool 80’s vibe and authentic street art, DMC is a superhero for those who need one most. The character dons his tracksuit, Adidas trainers and knuckle dusters to defend the city’s marginalised citizens against super villain and super hero alike.

For those in the know, you will delight in the tributes to DMC’s favourite comics you grew up with. For those that aren’t, you’ll gasp at the impact on the wall, the accessibility of the genre, and the fact that this was all started by a Hip-Hop legend millions grew up with.

One & Other @ Zabludowicz Collection / until 26th February 2017 ?

Doors:
Thu-Sun 12–6pm

One & Other explores the duality that emerges from the daily performing of a persona other than ourselves. The show constitutes a spatial experiment in which the concept of the stage is used as a metaphor to investigate this duality. A parallel is drawn between the dynamic of an actor and their performed role onstage and our relationship to our projected personas on social media platforms. From this starting point the exhibition questions, through a range of contemporary artworks of different mediums, the permanence of our identity, what influences it, the multiple shapes it takes and our relationship towards the other self.

“Self-identity has been questioned and explored constantly throughout the history of culture; it has been a clear generative force for much of the creativity in the world. Self-portraiture used to be the way artists explored their own selves, but the world keeps changing. Technology evolves furiously, people’s desires transform constantly. In this context, our virtual presence in digital platforms forces our identity to divide itself into who we are in reality and who we perform to be.” – the curatorial team

Do Ho Suh: Passage/s @ Victoria Miro / until 18th March 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm
Monday by appointment
Sunday, closed

@ Victoria Miro, 16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW

Free entry

www.victoria-miro.com

Do Ho Suh meticulously constructs proportionally exact replicas of dwelling places, architectural features, or household appliances from stitched planes of translucent, coloured polyester fabric.

In exquisitely made works, Do Ho Suh explores contemporary arrangements of space and the unstable boundaries of its categorisation along lines of individuality and collectivity, physicality and immateriality, mobility and fixity. Influenced by his peripatetic existence – leaving his native South Korea to study and live in the United States, he has more recently moved between New York, Seoul and London – an enduring theme of the artist’s practice is the connection between the individual and the group across global cultures. The multiplicity of individuality is tested through meditative processes of repetition: whether interlinked along a lattice of fishing nets, amassed into monumental tornado-like forms, absent from ranks of empty uniforms, or present in every yearbook photo taken at the artist’s high school over 60 years, the artist uses the reproduced human figure to explore sensitively, and with spectacular formal effect, the ways in which personal space inherently extends into the collective sphere.
