Splice Festival 2018

Like the last few years Splice Festival is back at the Rich Mix in Shoreditch! From Thursday 10th till Sunday 13th of May.
The best live audiovisual performing, live music, DJs & VJs. How amazing is that?
The Rich Mix is located in 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London, E1 6LA. Not far from Park Villa, you can either go by walk... 35 minutes in chill-walking-mode-on, or just take the bus number 8 here in Roman Road and go down in front of the Rich Mix in 9 minutes. The Park Villa Team is definitely not missing it. Have a look in their website for tickets and the 4 days programme!

Hunterian Museum

The Royal College of Surgeon

 

The Hunterian Museum houses one of the oldest collections of anatomical, pathological and zoological specimens in the UK. Both fascinating and gruesome, this museum is a true hidden gem in London. With its collection of bizarre and unusual anatomical things you have everything from two headed cats to a collection of human genetalia. Nothing more real!

The museum is free but unfortunately will be closed till 2020 while the Royal College of Surgeons building is redeveloped.

Did you know that early surgeons did not require a medical degree to become a surgeon? Surgeons became qualified by attending lectures and serving apprenticeships before gaining a diploma. A medical degree only became compulsory in the 20th century.

 

Whitechapel Bell Foundry

Have You Heard about Big Ben?

 

If you know a tiny bit of London history you should know that the north clock tower ( also known as Elizabeth Tower) at the Houses of Parliament has got a Great Bell called Big Ben! The Whitechapel Bell Foundry, 20 minutes by walk from Park Villa, is notable for being the original manufacturer of Big Ben. You won’t be able to visit the foundry anymore but It’s worth to see if you are in the neighbourhood. It’s funny how few people can actually relate that yellow shop on Whitechapel Road to the famous Big Ben.

 

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic

An exhibition dedicated to Cornwall’s most magical Museum. The exhibition will feature haunting photographs of haunted objects from Of Shadows: One Hundred Objects from The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic by Sara Hannant and Simon Costin and a bewildering mix of magical objects including a Witch Mirror, a waxen curse poppet, spells and charms and items from a Black Magicians altar.

This exhibition will start on November the 2nd till the end of February in The Last Tuesday Society, a very cool bar and museum. The place is near Victoria Park, so it’s just a few minutes walk from Park Villa, at Mile End.

 

 

Joan Cornellà’s London Exhibition

Joan Cornellà: A London Solo Exhibition

 

Joan Cornellà is a Barcelona based cartoonist and illustrator famous for his works imbued with unsettling, surreal, and black humour. Through simplistic visual language, he satirizes the sinister and often bleak side of humanity through unconventional scenarios. In these times of extreme hypocrisy, the artist sheds some light onto ourselves, unveiling human nature in Cornella’s notoriously disquieting manner.

The 17-day exhibition from 15th of September to the 1st of October, hosted at the charming Hoxton Arches, will include new canvas paintings and limited edition illustrations, as well as books, shirts, and prints available for purchase. Joan will be signing copies of his new book, SOT, on various occasions across the exhibition.

Moniker International Art Fair

The Most Exciting Contemporary Art Fair

 

The exhibition will be on Brick Lane, from the 5th till the 8th of October. You can stay with us and just pick the bus from Park Villa in Mile End, or go for a walk and enjoy the views and the street art in Shoreditch area, it’s not far!

Now in its 8th year, Moniker Art Fair aims to spotlight emerging and established talent from a burgeoning and increasingly diverse contemporary art movement forged by its subversive and innovative spirit. Staged during London’s most important art week in October, Moniker Art Fair attracts some of the most talked about artists, galleries and collectors from the finer side of the street art movement and its related subcultures.

Moniker rallies against the familiar grind of the art fair season with a curated, experiential and immersive focus, creating unique settings for the display of artists and their work. With a proven track record of delivering a rich and varied programme since its formation in 2010, the fair has grown significantly since its inception both in terms of audience and relevance.
