LN-CC has got to be one of the most interesting stores around right now. What other store would sell these intricate Mexican beaded skulls by Our Exquisite Corpse alongside the Damir Doma and Jil Sander?
The Mexicans have a very lively way of celebrating the dead, as exhibited by their traditional Day of the Dead festival. On 7th November, London gets in on the act with WE DON’T SPEAK MEXICAN at The Book Club in Leonard Street. A screening of the animation Hasta Los Huesos (Down to the Bone), a quiz and a chance to create an altar to your own missed loved one (plus I’m sure there will be a cocktail or two involved), this promises to be quite the colourful event.
The Book Club, 100-106 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH
Monday 7th November, WE DON’T SPEAK MEXICAN – DAY OF THE DEAD, 7pm – 10pm, £5
