A treat for your inner child (or your actual child), this exhibition focuses on the work of American Modernist Alexander Calder – also known as the man who invented the hanging mobile. Calder was the most playful of the great 20th century sculptors, obsessed with movement and theatricality. His mobiles seem to have a life of their own, and watching them as they spin and cast shadows on the walls is joy incarnate.
A century of Croatian graphic art, from the vaults of the National Library's Graphic Collection.
Over 100 images taken during Croatia's War Of Independence are presented in Up Close and Personal: War in Croatia, the first official exhibition at the new Image Of War Photography Museum. The exhibition holds not only the work of professional Croatian, Serb and world-renowned photographers such as Peter Turnley, Dragoljub Zamurović, Ron Haviv, Christopher Morris, Romeo Ibrišević and Matko Biljak, but also photos donated by the public. Alongside the photographs are the testimonies of those who were caught up in the conflict. The exhibition depicts not only the actual conflict and those who took part, but also the aftermath and the people who existed within that environment. Photographs of disturbed and injured participants in the war stand next to those of the distraught and grieving, plus those of children who make a playground in the scorched earth, destruction and rubble.

For anyone with an interest in outsider music or alternative rock, this concert is simply a must. Australian multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey has been a vital contributor to alternative rock since the mid-'70s, when he was a founding member of legendary bad boys The Birthday Party, alongside Nick Cave. Harvey followed his friend into later band, The Bad Seeds and stayed for 22 years, departing in 2009 to end what had been a 36 year long collaboration. In later years, Mick Harvey's other great collaboration has been with English artist PJ Harvey (no relation). He appeared as a musician on her 'To Bring You My Love' (1995), 'Is This Desire?' (1998) and 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' (2015) albums and he played on and co-produced her 'Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea' (2000) and 'Let England Shake' (2011) albums. He has also toured extensively as a member of PJ Harvey's stunning live band. Having released several solo albums, including 'The Fall And Rise Of Edgar Bourchier And The Horrors Of War' (2018), this concert sees him present a double-header containing two seperate sections. One will see a performance by close collaborator J.P. Shilo (Hungry Ghosts / Rowland S. Howard / The Blackeyed Susans) while the other section of the show will see Harvey draw from his solo material. Joining the pair on stage will be Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Glenn Lewis (Cambodian Space Project) on bass.
Highly acclaimed UK-based Pink Floyd tribute act celebrates 40 years of the Floyd's most famous concept album 'The Wall' by performing the rock opera in its entirety. A semi-autobiographical rock opera by founding Pink Floyd member Roger Waters, The Wall is one of the biggest selling albums of all time and explores at times harrowing themes such as self-imposed isolation, bullying, mental illness and even fascism, albeit viewed through the eyes of a rather precious and privileged global rock star. Though under-credited, a large amount of the album's success and longevity should be attributed to its producer, Bob Ezrin, who also worked extensively with Alice Cooper and produced Croatian duo 2Cellos 2013 album 'In2ition'. The show will feature impressive production and will also feature classic Floyd songs from albums like 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Dark Side of the Moon'.
