The weekend in London 31.05

Henry Moore

This is a major exhibition of some of Henry Moore‘s large-scale sculptures, awe-inspiring works of contoured, mainly abstract forms that stick to his ethos of doing things on a big big scale. And it works; Moore is one of the world’s most renowned sculptors. This extra special exhibition sees his work placed in an indoor setting for the very first time, and with the weather being so good and all… make sure you go check it out.

Until 18th August 
Gagosian Gallery, 6-24 Britannia Street, London WC1X 9JD

Sarah Lucas: Make Love

Sarah Lucas is cut from the same cloth as fellow Young British Artists generationers like Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. Though her stuff differs greatly from that of her peers, you can feel the same sense and expression of energy and rebellion. Her Make Love exhibition features plenty of overt eroticism, though it’s all harmless enough, demonstrated through replicas that are barely human yet which feature many human traits. A fun, eye-opening collection.

Until December 2012

Wet Paint with Inxec at Westbourne Studios

Though he now resides in sunny Miami, Inxec is a proponent of the British school of house and techno, merging the two close cousins perfectly. Last year he was responsible for the awesome ‘Westbound EP’ along with some friends of his in Los Angeles, Droog. West London isn’t the most obvious setting for this kind of party, but thanks to the Loft Studios in nearby Kensal Green, it’s becoming an acceptable alternative to east London.

Secretsundaze Jubilee Bank Holiday Special

Of all the hundreds of parties happening this week, Secretsundaze is an essential destination. Party promoters in London for over ten long years now, the crew remains almost the same as the day it was born, meaning their party-professionalism is second to none. This Sunday they take over a special outdoor spot in south east London with headliners Joy Orbison and the legen Lil’ Louis.
