Magnum 62

An excellent premise for an expo: 62 pictures, one from each member of the legendary Magnum photo agency. Responsible for some of the world’s most famous and iconic photographs including the one of Che Guevara above, this exhibition features a stunning collection of pictures from an agency that’s already rightfully earned its place in history.

Remote Control

The UK recently switched from analogue to digital television, rendering many TVs obsolete in the process while ushering in a new viewing era. No longer will the Brits have to contend with jimmying the aerial around in order to get a clear signal. This exhibition explores how society is dealing with the convergence of digital media and the effect the changes have had on older types of broadcast media, and will feature contributions from a laundry list of artists. Well worth a trip to the mall.

Until 10th June

The Black Belles

With both the blessing and tutelage of none other than Jack White, the Black Belles are a force to be reckoned with. Carving out their own niche in what’s been dubbed ‘garage goth’ by some, this foursome are headlining at one of Brixton’s hidden gems this weekend. Make sure you head down and check it out, and make sure you’re prepared for a bit of headbanging.

Tief present Suol Showcase

Just a stone’s throw from Ministry Of Sound lies another London venue that’s fast becoming an institution – Corsica Studios. Though quite basic in its set up, this place has played host to some great parties over the past couple of years and continues to attract top notch line-ups. For this event, trusty promoters Tief will be hosting members of the Suol record label out of Berlin, whose payroll boasts Daniel Bortz and Fritz Kalkbrenner.
