Supersonic this weekend! But what else is on? « More Canals than Venice – Absolutely loads, according to PixieSixer. Ikon Eastside is showing the work of Raqs Media Collective, Eastside Projects is showing the work of Joanne Taham and Tom O’Sullivan and VIVID continues the Participation film exhibition. And as if that weren’t enough:
There is also a launch event on Friday 24th from 7-9pm at The Bond (located opposite Ikon Eastside on Fazeley Street) for the new Ikon offsite project, Hey for Lubberland! Artists Simon & Tom Bloor have specially adapted a canal boat using geodesic design and dazzle camouflage. After Supersonic weekend, the canal boat will be based in Brindleyplace and transport passengers around the area. Timetables for boat trips can be found on the Ikon website.
Sounds brilliant, and I’m kind of sorry I’m planning to be halfway to Devon by then. Also look out for the Organic Beer Festival at The Anchor Inn (with organic barbecue on Saturday) and Babak Salari at The Edge on Saturday evening:
