Farmopolis is a trendy new suburban city farm located on the Greenwich peninsular, surrounded by water and just a stone's throw from the O2. Farmopolis is a beautiful space bringing together farming, food, arts and culture.
Besides the scenic surroundings, Farmopolis is also a space to enjoy some food and drink in the greenhouse, in a well-designed rustic interior. The urban farm is also running arts and crafts workshops throughout the week for all ages.

A combination of live performance, music, film, and fine art, the Barbican presents the first UK survey of renowned Icelandic performance artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s works. Ragnar’s works dive into sorrow, bathe in melancholy, and yet you leave the exhibition feeling lighter. Uplifted. Like staring at a word for so long you stop recognizing it, Ragnar has an ability to take sadness and repeat it until it is no longer a feeling, but a construct to be mocked.

In Zevs' version we see oil company logos on the wall of the modernist building, melting realistically down into the pool, where they create rainbow sheens of pollution. The Hockney-inspired section occupied the first room in the gallery, can be seen from the street. The second phase of the exhibition runs into the back room.
