Stop. Rewind. Take us back to summer!
The weather is being a real bummer this week – rain, cold, wind. It feels like we’re back in autumn again. So, the artFix London team decided to act accordingly and have an Autumn themed Art Battle yesterday (Tuesday, 28th). Duh!
The Battle was a success, as per usual. Everyone had a great time sipping on a great Apple Pie Punch made by our lovely staff.
It saw the Dundee-born artist Graeme Hallidonto fight against the mesmerising dancing duo of Benjamin Sunarjo and Mara Natterer. In the end, the Scottish painter won and his beautiful artwork (picture above) will be showcased in our space window for a whole week.
Speaking of Art Battles, we’re having and exhibition of all the works made during our Four Season Art Battles on Wednesday 6th May, 7-9pm. The artists will be there, there will be live outdoor performances and delicious food and drinks.
We’re extremely excited, as it’ll be a real celebration of art with great live music by Louiza Lambrianide and Clementine – our go-to musicians and artFix aficionados.
On Tuesday 5th May, 6-7.30pm, we’re extremely pleased to announce we’ll be hosting the book launch of ‘Terminal Innocence’, a novel by Klaus Rifbjerg.
The book is a classic of twentieth-century Danish literature. It is the story of the unequal friendship between two teenagers, Janus and Tore, growing up in occupied Denmark, and told from the point of view and in the schoolboy slang of the hero-worshipping Janus.
The event will feature translator Paul Larkin and Dr Mikkel Bruun Zangenberg, Danish literary critic and Lecturer at the University of Kent at Canterbury. Light refreshments will be supplied. It is a free event but seats are limited, so if you’re planning to attend just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 30 April.
On Monday 11th May, we’re very happy to present another Short Film Night. After Italy, Spain, Poland and France, this time is Russia’s turn! As usual our programme will feature many different film genres ranging from documentaries to comedies and animation. If you’re a film buff or if you simply want to spend a nice different night after work, come and enjoy the films. They are all really good!
Along with the screening, we’ll be offering vodka shots – it’s mandatory – and Russian blinis.
