This has to be one of my favourite collaborations of the year thus far: fusing together my tipple de vivre with collaboration-connoisseur de jour, Jeremy Scott has designed a special box for Tanqueray and their premium gin label, N°Ten. The striped retro-print that lines the inside of the box harks back to an Americana cool of the Fifties, and if that's not a good enough reason to pour yourself a G&T, I don't know what is.
There could be nothing more opposite than the cobbled streets of Rome and the god-like blocks that make up New York City in Tetris-formation, yet through to November you can find a slice of cutting edge contemporary art in the Eternal City from sixty artists who call downtown New York 'home' and who all capture the soul and life of "a New York Minute". From street artists to collectives, the exhibition, New York Minute - curated by Kathy Grayson - will be presented at MACRO Future Museum. Look out for the amazing O.H.W.O.W. pop up store that features work by Rafael de Cardenas and if you're in Rome this is a must-see... enjoy! Images thanks to Aaron Bondaroff
If you're in Madrid this weekend, check out Soft Horse at the group show, Caucho, Telas Y Otras Pieles (Rubbers, Fibers & Other Skins) at Associación Cultural Mediodia Chica from the 18th-20th September. The hand-printed design on acrylic fur is being exhibited with other artist's toys from around the world. More photos of the show coming soon - click here for opening times... saddle up kids!
