Another month, another chance to trade in the enticing spring outdoors for some delicious culture, indoors!
You guys! Our artsy agenda this May, holds great favours for brave creatives, for the nonconformists at heart, soul, and beyond. Already iconic and surprising collaborations grace the globe, while we can agree there’s never been a more perfect timing for teleportation to be invented.
It came and went, the most anticipated night for fashion dudes and dudettes – the Met Gala. Though not everlasting, the pleasure of witnessing the legacy of Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons in one place will linger until September 4th, for all the curious minds that go against the flow. And while we’re at it, challenge yourself on how you’ll be the wonderfully one out.
One of our recently favourite galleries in the big smoke – The Unit London – stands out for giving space to young and restless artists. Will Martyr represents the bright future of mixed media art, creating staggering paintings, stemming from architectural photography. A worthy Hockney successor, Martyr displays his work in the atmospheric gallery, and trust us when we say “your eyes are about to meet their newest obsession.”

Another iconic event, a landmark for the world of arts is coming out of hibernation in a typical two-year fashion, on May 13th and will roll until November 26th. The 57th Venice Biennale is titled “Viva Art Viva” and lights the beacon for everyone who lives on the highest form of hope: art. And in these times, it’s much needed.
Instagrammers, rejoice! Word on the street (erm, the West Coast actually) has it that the most Instagrammable wall of LA is coming to life at the artistic hotspot that is the DeRe Gallery, from May 11th to June 6th. Anna Fafaliou, the artist behind the show “Traces of Memory” will feed the audience with her perceptions of identity and memory and an array of key objects dressed (better yet, undressed) in minimalistic white and a collection of two-word neon phrases ready to be #-ed!
