Camp Getaway: Join John Waters

Yes, SEEN knows you read it for London-based events but come on, the Pope of Trash himself in a John Waters themed weekend! This September 22nd – 24th pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, book your air ticket for America and revel in the company of the King of Bad Taste as he reads from one of his own books, hosts a costume contest, a dance party, a one-man show, a q + a session and all the other things that Summer Camp is famous for. Guests will leave with an autographed copy of John Waters’ latest book, Make Trouble.

Highlights include: ‘Hairspray Karaoke’, ‘Bloody Mary Bingo’, Bungee Trampoline and Burlesque Lessons. How camp is that? Your food is included in the price of your cabin, but alcohol is extra; definitely worth leaving London for.

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.
