Grimes in California, a design weekend in Tokyo and Amuse at Wilderness Festival

  • Written by Amuse Team
  1. 1. Grimes hits California

    The experimental pop princess is hitting California as part of this weekend’s Outside Lands festival. Happening in San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park, LCD Soundsystem, Grimes, Radiohead and Lionel Richie will come together to perform over three hot and hazy August days.

  2. 2. A weekend of architecture and design Tokyo

    In Tokyo this week, world leading architects and designers have come together to discuss the future of our cities and how we live in them at House Vision Exhibition. Wander around conceptual structures and find out what the cities of future could look like.

  3. 3. Stop by Samos in the Greek Isles

    If you’re flying through the Greek isles this week (or month) then make sure you stop by the island of Samos. As you pull up to the port, Art Space Pythagorion is a gallery space showing powerful photography of some of the people stranded by the current refugee crisis. Exile and loss are themes that run throughout the collection of installation, performance, photography, film, video and photojournalism. The work looks at the plight of the refugees, from a humanitarian point of view, and acknowledges the complex roots of one of the most pressing issues of our time.

  4. 4. Go see Nan Goldin’s The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

    The 1985 film and 1986 artist's book of the same name is on show at MoMA and it’s not to be missed. You’ve got time (until February) to see almost 700 portraits set against against an evocative soundtrack. This is Goldin’s intimate portrayal of love, sex, ecstasy and pain in images she captured across Boston, New York and Berlin in the 1970s and 80s. The dreamy soundtrack accompanying the film Goldin, which described as a diary of her life, includes the likes of Maria Callas and The Velvet Underground.

  5. 5. Head to Wilderness Festival

    See Robert Plant, Flaming Lips, Lianne La Havas, Parov Stelar, and top Michelin-starred chefs come together in the lush green fields of Oxfordshire. This is no ordinary festival, forget porta-loos and expect biodynamic wine instead. Make sure you don’t miss the Amuse Wellbeing session with Skinny Bitch Collective’s Russell Bateman.
