Sketch

Music is indeed nothing new at sketch. When it opened its doors in 2003, founder and restaurateur Mourad Mazouz brought his passion for music with him and introduced French electro sounds from the underground to the West End. Thirteen years on, sketch remains a leading destination for music; one can expect to hear a variety of sounds from deep house and electro-pop to reggae, fusing different genres and thus creating one of the leading music programmes in London.

The music talks, which will run monthly from 12th September 2016 until February 2017, coincide with the V&A’s You say you want a revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970 exhibition, which explores music as a catalyst of the mass revolution that has shaped our society since the 60s. Its curator, Geoffrey Marsh, will be a guest speaker.

To launch a year in Music, sketch combines a three-course lunch in the two Michelin-starred Lecture Room & Library with an exhibition ticket for You say you want a revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970 at the V&A. Guests will take away a bespoke goody bag by Parisian Perfumer, Diptyque.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
