What's on and where to go this weekend

By Kuba Shand-Baptiste on
  • CELEBRATE WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE

    Against the backdrop of being an industry with a reputation for rampant sexism, the Ivan Jones: Architects exhibition puts the spotlight on women by championing Europe's leading women architects, and photographing them with the materials and environments that they work with. The exhibition will be on at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings from Saturday 1 January  – April 15. For more information, click here.

  • WELCOME THE "ENDO" THE WORLD

    Anyone who's stuggled to get to the root of blindingly agonising symptoms of menstruation – killer cramps, nausea and my personal favourite, leaking (ugh) – will know just how important it is to make it easier for women to receive a diagnosis for endometriosis (it usually takes an average of seven years). In aid of that often futile effort, charity Endometriosis UK is putting on an Endo The World Party, complete with comedy, art and music. It takes place on February 3 2018 in Cambridge, and tickets are £25 each. For more informaton, click here.

  • DISCOVER THE FIRST AMONG EQUALS

    Along with the rest of the country, the Foundling Museum in London is commemorating 100 years of women's suffrage. The First Among Equals exhibition – which pairs pioneering women in British history with objects from the museum that resonate with them – will be on until January 19. Some of the contributors to the exhibition include: Maria Balshaw, the first female Director of the Tate; Francesca Hayward, the first black female principal dancer of the Royal Ballet, and Joanne Moore, the first female tailor to have a men’s tailoring business on Savile Row.

  • SKETCH THE Sacred FEMININE

    In a world where male deities often take precedence over any other, it's high time we celebrated some of history's forgotten goddesses. As part of that effort, the London Drawing Group are hosting a drawing tour at the British Museum from Friday 26 January - Saturday 24 February. SACRED FEMININE: The Art Of The Goddesses, will provide drawing workshops and a guided drawing tour of artefacts from across the globe, so bring something to draw on and sketch with, if you're planning on going down.

  • SEE AN UNUSUAL MUSICAL

    It's notoriously difficult to broach something as serious as a cancer diagnosis with humour, let alone as part of a musical. But Complicite's A Pacifist's Guide To The War On Cancer, which features actual cancer patients, huge anthems and an exploration of life and death, is said to do a pretty good job of it. The show is on at the Everyman Playhouse in Liverpool from January 26 - February 2. For tickets and more information, click here.

  • SEE ART BY WOMEN

    Women – the latest exhibition from Horsecross Arts in Perth, Scotland is putting on a showcase of 60 works by women, including contemporary art, film and podcasts, to name a few. Featuring artists from over 20 countries, Women will run until International Women's Day (8 March). For more information, click here.

  • VISIT THE TATE UNTIL LATE

    True to form, the latest edition of Tate Lates is back with an eclectic offering of music, film and dance. This week, the museum is teaming up with Uniqlo, which, as well as hosting art talks throughout the night, is also bringing dance classes from the likes of Cross Polli.Nation, a human roulette station and discussions about gentrification and regeneration with the People’s Bureau. It'll be held from 6 - 10pm today. For more information, click here

  • BOOK NOW FOR LATER

    There are few depictions of motherhood as arresting and raw as those found in Camille Sanson's ABSOLUTION exhibition at the Herrick Gallery in London, which is what makes it such a must-see. The photographic series delves into the "collective pain of the feminine", while drawing on her personal fears and experiences. ABSOLUTION is on from Monday 29 January until Sunday 4 February.
