London Jazz Festival at various venues until Sunday 25 November 2018

The Capital’s biggest pan-city music festival, taking place annually in November, which has long been acclaimed for showcasing a heady mix of talent from around the world. Widely acknowledged for delivering world-class artists and emerging stars, the Festival continues to take jazz to a massive audience, in one of UK’s landmark music events. 🎺🎷🎸🎼🎵🎶🎤

The festival was created in 1992 by live international music producers, Serious. The festival emerged from the long-standing Camden Jazz Week which was created in 1970; with the active support of the London Arts Board (now Arts Council England, London). Serious – who had for some years produced the Camden Jazz Week – engineered a transition that saw the evolution of the festival. Taking a mix of international and British artists and a commitment to education activity, the London Jazz Festival began to spread its wings. The aims of the festival still remain the same today; celebrating the place of jazz in a city which is at ease with its rich cultural diversity, and drawing in a multitude of venues across London who present the music, week in, week out, throughout the year.

The festival is produced by Serious, one of the UK’s leading producers and curators of live jazz, international and new music. Serious produces events that range from major concerts, festivals and national and international tours through to learning and participation programmes, conferences and specially commissioned bespoke events. Alongside its core role as a live music events producer, it works in artist and rights management. Alongside this exists the registered charity, Serious Trust, which has been established to support the next generation of artists and audiences through our artist development, learning and participation and commissioning programmes.

Rachel Maclean at Zabludowicz Collection until 16 December 2018

Rachel Maclean has rapidly established herself as one of the most distinctive creative voices in the UK. Creating baroque, hyper-real worlds using green-screen video and computer animation, and playing many of the extravagantly costumed characters herself, Maclean spins razor-sharp fables that combine comedy and horror. Her work offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desires. 💭

Maclean first exhibited at the Zabludowicz Collection in 2014 with a solo exhibition as part of our Invites programme, and now returns for the 2018 Annual Commission show. At its centre is I’m Terribly Sorry, a new Zabludowicz Collection commission in virtual reality, the artist’s first piece in the medium, made in collaboration with Werkflow. An interactive experience set in a dystopian urban British landscape of manic tourist merchandise, it reflects on societal unease and misunderstanding in a culture of voracious documentation, self-performance and voyeurism.

Renzo Piano at Royal Academy of Arts until 20 January 2019

From The Shard in London to the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the buildings of Renzo Piano have enriched cities across the globe. We reveal the vision and invention behind his pioneering work, showing how architecture can touch the human spirit. 🏙 🌆

United by a characteristic sense of lightness, and an interplay between tradition and invention, function and context, Piano’s buildings soar in the public imagination as they do in our skylines. Counting the New York Times Building and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in Nouméa among his creations, he has cemented his place as one of the greatest architects of our times.

This illuminating exhibition follows Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making. Focusing on 16 key buildings, it explores how the Renzo Piano Building Workshop designs buildings “piece by piece”, making deft use of form, material and engineering to achieve a precise and yet poetic elegance.

Marvel in rarely seen drawings, models, photography, signature full-scale maquettes and a new film by Thomas Riedelsheimer that show how inspiring architecture is made. At the heart of the exhibition is an imagined ‘Island’, a specially designed sculptural installation which brings together nearly 100 of Piano’s projects.

Designed and curated in close collaboration with Piano himself, join us for the first exhibition in London to put the spotlight on Piano in 30 years.

Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt at V&A until 24 February 2019

This exhibition provides a unique insight into the design process behind a selection of groundbreaking contemporary videogames. Design work, including concept art and prototypes, feature alongside large-scale immersive installations and interactives. 🕹 👾

Exploring the medium since the mid-2000s, when major technological advancements, such as increased access to broadband, social media, smart phones and newly available means of making, profoundly changed the way videogames are designed, discussed and played. This change has opened the door to new voices and ideas, allowing the medium to break beyond its perceived boundaries and aspire to new horizons.

Vegtoberfest at Fest Camden on Saturday 7 October 2018

The UK’s first vegan Oktoberfest celebration. The Bavarian themed beer festival will couple the merry traditions of Oktoberfest with vegan friendly beers, wines and street food. 😛 👏 🌱

Oktoberfest is a beer festival first and foremost and Vegtoberfest is just that. Vegan-friendly Bavarian beers will sit alongside a handful of local vegan craft ales, while vegan wines, mulled wine and hot and cold cocktails will also be available.

It wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest celebration without Bratwurst so Vegtoberfest will serve a range of vegan Bratwurst and sausages with all the usual trimmings at the Brat Grill. Vegtoberfest will also make use of Fest Roof Garden’s wood-fired pizza oven where a selection of vegan pizzas with Bavarian themes will be served.

Fest Camden’s main room will be transformed into a Bavarian beer hall where guests can enjoy their ‘steins’ while live music, comedy and DJs will provide the entertainment on stage. Guests will enjoy food and drink from the roof garden with views over Camden Stables Market!
