FETCH FAVES | DECEMBER 2019

This month's favorite shows, music, exhibits and more.

 

Music


The Weeknd - Heartless

Starboy's latest single is sharp, sexy and intense, accompanied by a simply gorgeous music video inspired by the 1970s film/novel Fear and loathing in Las Vegas.

Beck - Uneventful Days

From his new album Hyperspace, Uneventful Days embraces everything that makes us love Beck: bright poppy sounds, bouncing melodies and a fantasy feel.


 

Shows


Teenage Dick at the Donmar Warehouse

An excellent and bitingly intelligent re-imagination of the tyrant's time in an 1990s American high-school, with brilliant performances and great writing.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane at the National

Joel Horwood's stage adaption of the Neil Gaiman novel is a beautiful and fantastical acclimation of magic, monsters and memory.

A Kind of People at the Royal Court

Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti's new drama is a moving and politically potent look at race, family and work.


 

Exhibits


Bridget Riley at Hayward Gallery, South Bank

Optical illusions, altered perceptions and huge canvases simultaneously delight and overwhelm at Riley's largest solo show yet.

Patrick Staff: On Venus at Serpentine Gallery

Modern, fresh and undeniably weird, On Venus really does take you to a another planet with unending mirrors, unearthly lights and unexplained barrels.

Nam June Paik: The Future is Now at Tate Modern, Bankside

Korean-American artist Nam June Paik has created a space of screens and sounds spiked with sharp social critique and splashes of humour.

 

Accounts
