Our pick of NYC happenings
Pencil This NYC // VOL VIII: Scrap that dull family BBQ and get ready to feel forever young as we take you back to the anxious, rebellious best times of your life.
HHNYC Summer School: Moonheart, Secret Loft
Are illegal warehouses and raves not really your thang? We feel you, and that’s why we think you should give this still under-the-radar sexy bash a go, in the hipster-enclave of Manhattan. This time, it’s back to school with experimental electric pop and R&B.
Young American, Bohemian National Hall
Young love, first experiences and romantic revolutions. This incredible body of work by photographer Marie Tomanova offers a new voice on American youth culture. Heads up: it might take you back to 1967 San Francisco.
Coney Island Circus Sideshow
Who wants to do their own laundry, cook their own meals and worry about taxes when you can spend an afternoon in New York City’s playground? Whilst you’re there, you can marvel at the sword swallowers and fire eaters while chowing down on Nathan’s famous hot-dogs.
Street Art Expedition, SoHo
There’s nothing like rebellious street art to reawaken your teen-self. Meet in SoHo and stroll to Chinatown – grabbing some Little Italy pizza on the way – whilst learning about this underground world from an active live street artist.
Renoir: Father and Son / Painting and Cinema, Barnes Foundation
Whoever said talent isn’t hereditary is probably biting their tongue: this exhibition takes in the work of father and son talents, the impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and the filmmaker Jean Renoir. To inspire you – and maybe look at your father differently.
