Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Autumn Almanac

From Thursday this week Ikon Gallery presents Autumn Almanac, a four-day event which promises to be a thoroughly entertaining showcase of creativity in the city with art, film and music. It kicks off with cinematic adventurers 7 inch Cinema hosting an evening of short films and music, taking place on and inspired by the seventeenth of November.

Friday will see an evening curated by Moseley Folk. Unfortunately, the Treetop Flyers have had to pull out, but I’m sure a fantastic replacement will be found. Can we have Laura Marling in the gallery again please?

Saturday sees both Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham (afternoon) and Slow Boat Sessions (evening) curated by Ikon’s Youth Programme.

The four-day celebration finishes with performances by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group in the afternoon and Andrew Moscardo-Parker performing as Lash Frenzy in an evening curated by Capsule.

Over the weekend there will also be screenings of Oliver Beer’s Resonance Project filmed in Pershore Street Car Park last year and What To Do In An Emergency, a new series of paintings by Stephen Earl Rogers inspired by a 1980s self-help manual and in which a few familiar faces in the Birmingham art/cultural scene are engaged in activities such as jumping rivers and performing Heimlich manoeuvres…
