But First, Coffee...

Raise your mugs for London’s 6th annual Coffee Festival at Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane on 6-9th April to kick-start every caffeine-laced drinker’s favourite time of year; National Coffee Week, 10-16th April.

To celebrate London’s boundless love affair with coffee, there will be a whole host of alluring coffee stands and lip-smacking food stalls that really will make you full of beans. It does not stop there, as well as offering up a plethora of coffee and street food options, you can also get stuck into home barista workshops, latte art classes and of course, the ultimate tasting challenge!

Coffee is not just a habitual aspect of our daily lives, it sparks creativity, which is why London Coffee Festival is proud to join with The Coffee Art Project so up-and-coming artists can demonstrate their passion and spirit for the nation’s favourite pick-me-up. Contestants will get the chance to really espresso themselves (pardon the pun) by creating a piece of artwork that portrays their individual perception about coffee. To top it off, 50% of the money from the ticket sales will go towards providing clean water to coffee cultivating communities with Project Water.

So, wake up and smell the coffee and get your tickets now at

‘Fake News’ with Fred Tomaselli

Keeping up with current affairs can be a dark and dismal business, so why not look at it with a different approach? Until 13th May, White Cube Gallery in Mason’s Yard will be showcasing Paper by Fred Tomaselli; an exhibition that the gallery believes can ‘highlight the tragedy, reality and absurdity of global politics.’

Each piece of work illustrates a topical headline on the front page of The New York Times with a hearty helping of satire on the side. Tomaselli uses a mixture of eclectic and obscure imagery to convey the message that the news we read today is nothing but subjective, as it is always printed with underlying motives, something that he likes to call 'fake news'. This exhibition is an innovative and exciting display of art which will guarantee to give you a different perspective on the current affairs we see in the media today. After all, who wouldn’t want to see Donald Trump’s head emerging from an eight-legged creature with Mitt Romney’s head?

Ideas for Living, Living for Ideas.

The Japanese House: Architecure and Life after 1945 looks at the experimental architecture that emerged in Japan after the second world war, and how it has developed up to the present day.

Split across the two levels of the Barbican Art Gallery, it offers an overview of distinct styles that defined house design in the country during this period, by showcasing the work of 40 architects. Highlights include a full-size recreation of a room from Kazuyo Sejima's House in a Plum Grove (2003), a model of Tadao Ando's Row House (1976), and photographs of Takemitsu Azuma's impressive Tower House (1974).

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a full-size model of Nishizawa's Moriyama House. Built in 2005, this residence was designed by the Pritzker Prize winner to challenge the format of the typical Japanese house. It sees the traditional home deconstructed into a series of separate rooms, arranged around a garden.
