Contemporary Art Exhibition in Kennington!

Dear Kennington News,

I would like to inform you that there will be a contemporary art exhibition in Kennington by two young artists (Katarina Rankovic and Takhmina Akhmedova) from 30th May - 6th June. It's admission free and suitable for all ages. Below is a description of the event, and please find attached some related images.


Artslav presents CUE; a quirky little number comprised of the work of artists Katarina Rankovic and Takhmina Akhmedova. Included are: 1930's Reinhardt jazz, a one-man cinema, mythological comic books, painting jams and improvised radio interviews with fictitious characters. The colour red, and the taste of red.
Housed in what was once a Victorian public underground lavatory, the works embrace spontaneity and improvisation, against a theatrical backdrop of self-mythologisation, ceremony and carnival. Visitors are invited to grab a glass of wine, and join us in creating a temporary hub of unexpected merriment and joie-de-vivre.

We would be grateful if you announced our exhibition on your blog. Also, feel free to come along to the opening on 30th May 7 - 11pm!

Kind regards,


Katarina Rankovic

University of the Arts London

Evening Standard: Our love affair with gin just the tonic for Pernod’s new chief

What could a Frenchman know about London dry gin? One Parisian, Alexandre Ricard, is keen to prove he knows quite a bit.

The family drinks business owns Beefeater — the only major brand of gin still made in the capital. Distilled in London since 1860, it has been at its current home in Kennington since 1958.

A hidden riot of greenery next to the Oval cricket ground

'Fictions of our South London'

Hi Kennington News! I hope this reaches you. I can find no way on your site of contacting you to publicise an event myself. It's at the Durning Library, Kennington Lane on Monday 19 May. Entitled 'Fictions of our South London', it's part of the Lambeth Readers and Writers Festival.

I'm Paula Coston, a novelist, whose novel - half-set in Kennington and environs, half in Sri Lanka - is about to come out. The evening should be fun. I'll be talking to the audience and showing them images of landmarks around our landscape that feature in novels, including mine.
There'll be a free-entry local landmark recognition competition, with the prize of a voucher towards a meal for at least two at the Jaffna House, Kennington. I'll be signing and selling my book; and there'll be the usual refreshments and warm welcome at the Library. It starts at 6.45 pm! 
 

Kennington Park Sat 31 May. Ping Pong event 2-4pm. ALL welcome, any level.
