INSTANCES – a new exhibition of paintings by DIJANA BEKVALAC

http://dijanabekvalac.blogspot.co.uk/

“My  imagery is close to cartographic landscapes and self-referential visual systems which exist in a condition of fragile order. It is about obsessive mapping of space, about the gathering of time invested in the production of an image.”

[update]

We received the following message from the Tricycle.

Dear booker,

We’re sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Jim Broadbent and Roger Michell will no longer be appearing at our Q&A screening of *Le Week-End* on Tuesday 15 October.

The Q&A will still be going ahead with leading actress Lindsay Duncan and writer Hanif Kureishi, hosted by film critic Baz Bamigboye.

Lindsay is a three time BAFTA nominee who has recently starred in *About Time* and *Alice in Wonderland*.

Hanif is an Oscar and BAFTA nominee, and New York Film Critics’ Circle Award winning playwright, screenwriter and novelist. His writing credits include *Venus* starring Peter O’Toole, *The Mother* starring Daniel Craig, novel and TV series *The Buddha Of Suburbia *(the novel and the mini-tv series) and *My Beautiful Laundrette*.

We hope you will still join us for what we’re sure will be a hugely enjoyable and insightful evening. Our Q&A screenings are charity events and funds raised from the evening will support our Artistic and Creative Learning programmes.

We do understand, however, that in light of the changes to the line-up, you may want a refund. If this is the case, please email boxofficemanager@tricycle.co.uk with the subject line ‘Le Week-End Refund’, your name and booking details. You will then receive an email within 48 hours confirming your card has been reimbursed.

We would hugely appreciate it if you can contact us as soon as possible if you no longer wish to attend but hope you will choose to come along to this special evening.

With best wishes,

OPEN MIC & ART SHOW!

Thursday 4 July at the Windmill – 57 Cricklewood Broadway.

We present a brand new exhibition of paintings by graffiti artist BAMBOOKIDD.
with music and poetry as part of our regular Open Mic event.
From 7.30pm. Performances start at 8.00pm.

The exhibition will continue throughout July.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri from 4pm, Sat – Sun from 1pm

BAMBOOKIDD has been sketching and doodling since he could hold a pen.
Influenced by the likes of D*Face, The London Police, Jamie Hewlett,
The Simpsons, comic books, cartoons and growing up with skater/hip-hop
culture, he eventually began to develop and work on a character of his own.
The result is BAMBOOKIDD – a blank canvas that appears in art
reflecting the influences and activity which emerge from his mind.
Past projects have included exhibitions, live drawings, in-store
designs for small boutiques and record shops, as well as comic books,
flyers and customizations.

This week will be our 20th open mic event at The Windmill. We would like to thank everybody – performers, artists, and audience alike, who have supported it so far.

A review by Amanda Beasley: “OMG I have just left the open Mic at the Windmill what a night !

“The evening started with a couple of numbers from the fantastic Panama Dave, followed by poems from the Cricklewood Bard Philip Chadwick, including a poem for Tolkien fans. Adam Tunji who came all the way from Plumstead to perform a couple of songs for us with Panama Dave, his song ‘Central Heating’ was wonderful. Poet Jack Kelly ‘Where would we be without your shinanigans’? is an Open Mic regular.

Tres B sang ‘I was a lonely man’ but he was far from lonely tonight with his 5 piece Congolese band. Songs “This is Africa”, “Freedom” and “I can’t go home”, set the place alight. Rabimsha played an instrument called a Berinbau played in Brazil, Africa and parts of Japan. This amazing instrument which resembled a long stick with a calabash at the bottom of it and one metal ‘string’ ( he tells me the metal comes from a car tyre ) is played using a pebble to change the tone, giving a beautiful sound. He sang ‘Welcome song’ which he wrote himself followed by a Jimi Hendrix cover “If 6 was 9”. Magical!

Kira Kenley and Neroli what a duo! I loved ‘Fade Away’ and ‘Tribute to London’ dont forget you said you would dance too next time! Please come back we loved you. ( Mikele Markionni dropped his usual operatic voice to sing some popular pop, and regular Zimmy van Zandt finished off. The evening was rounded off artistically with some live portrait drawing by Cricklewood artist Peter.

Well done to Tobias, photographer extraordinaire! Thank you everyone for another fantastic night.  Thank you to Henryk, Panama Dave and Carl Chamberlain for putting it together so well AGAIN!”

The next open mic is this Thursday 7th January featuring…

Guest MC Sarah-Jane Miller.
