Amapiano is coming to London’s Drumsheds
It’s not just any Amapiano, it’s the biggest Amapiano festival in the world that’s coming to London’s Drumshed launched by Piano People. The venue has just announced its inaugural lineup for the year, which include the likes of Skepta, Gorgon City and the Piano People on November 19.

In there, you’ll find some iconic pieces like the first Supreme x The North Face collab from 2007 or a 1995 Nylon Box Logo Crewneck sweater, as well as sample pieces that never made it to production.
Watch Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in LA’s open air

The Centre Pompidou in Paris honours the LGBTQ+ community
Pride month may be over but that’s not stopping the legendary Centre Pompidou from doing its thing.

Every year, Arles hosts its photography festival in summer and this year, the Nordic Søsterskap highlights a range of photographers from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. The theme this year is the welfare state from a female perspective, with works on show produced between the 60s to the 2010s.

The legendary FOAM photography museum in Amsterdam is hosting the multimedia artist Sara Cwynar.

From video essays to colleges and installation, the exhibition spans across media and will run until September 27.
Look at Heji Shin’s “The Big Nudes” in New York
