What better way to get your weekend started than with a bit of Satan worshipping? But there’s a twist courtesy of Twin Temple, a black-clad duo with a love of Roy Orbison and classic 1950s and 1960s rock and roll. Their signature sound could be summed up as ‘satanic doo-wop’, a style as dark as it is catchy.

Foam’s latest exhibition presents the work of American author Wright Morris, who was also a keen photographer. His interest was in the harsh reality of life in America's rural areas in the aftermath of the Great Depression in the 1930s. The focus for this exhibition is on his ‘photo-text’ books, which are largely unknown compared to his prize-winning literature.
Until 5 April // Foam

Mirror of the soul
A visit to Singer Laren is always rewarding, and doubly so with this exhibition looking into the very soul of artists. Back in the 1880s the Netherlands experienced a growth spurt spawning a dynamic urban culture, but for many artists it was a search for spirituality and reflection that floated their boats. See how they worked with new styles, symbols and hidden meanings in their quest for equality.
Until 10 May 2020 // Singer Laren
