The weekend in London 12.04

Wendy Mayer: Still Life

This autobiographical affair featuring Mayer’s doll sculptures is slightly disturbing, as dolls often are. Her work is compelling, making the viewer feel as though they’re interrupting dolls at play. Verges on voyeurism.

Until 12th May

Responsive Eyes

This exhibition is a throwback to The Responsive Eye, an exhibition from the sixties. It aims to explore modern relationships with art, how we look at things and our mental and physical relationship with visual creations. The 21st century has given us digitally–created artwork in the form of .gifs, paintings and the like, affecting our relationship with the computer screen. All this and more is explored.

Until 12th May
Jacob’s Island Gallery, 56 Butler’s & Colonial Wharf, 10–11 Shad Thames – London

New Cross Inn presents…

A rocking night of punk in south London is on the cards at the famous New Cross Inn. Catch The Vibrators, Stormchild and Buccha Effect. Uncompromising and full of energy, it should be one of those nights to remember.

Magna Carta presents…

Some of British underground’s rising stars are holding it down for Magna Carta this Saturday. A relatively new promotion in London’s highly saturated clubbing calendar, they seem to have their finger on the pulse as far as booking policy goes, while also managing to snap up good locations. South London duo No Artificial Colours headline, along with friends Max Chapman and Cera Alba.
