Culture Corner / October / What's On
In addition to the return of the Turner Prize to Tate Modern and the always fab Frieze Art Fair, there is a lot going in the capital (and Brighton!) this month. We’ve handpicked our favourites for you lovely people to consider. Everything Was Moving: Photography From The 60s And 70s / Barbican Centre
Lisa: 'Just down the road from the LPA offices, the Barbican have recently unveiled this fab new exhibition of photography from the 60s and 70s. Featuring work from big names like David Goldblatt, Bruce Davidson and Larry Burrows, ‘Everything Was Moving’ pivots around key events from the period such as Vietnam, the Cultural Revolution and the birth of mass consumerism. Runs until 12th January 2013'.

Tom: 'Opened last month in the Project Space at the Hayward Gallery, this cool little exhibition of punk graphic design from 1971-1984 is a must see for all music fans. Rare posters, zines, handbills and album covers, some of which have never been exhibited in public, literally cover the walls of this often forgotten gem on the Southbank. ‘Someday All The Wills Die!’ runs until 14th November.'

Lauren: 'Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information at The Royal Court Theatre jam packs 60 odd scenes and 100 characters into less than two of hours of fast-paced drama. Megabytes of information, the web of vignettes making up Love and Information are a powerful look at love and modern society. Runs until 13th October'
Alexa: 'As of this weekend, Brighton is certainly the place to be for all things photography related. With both the Biennial and Fringe kicking off in the same weekend, you won’t be short of exhibitions and events to choose from. Here are some personal highlights:
- Marking the opening weekend of the Biennial, their discussion day is definitely worth going to go to get an overview of the month ahead with some fab speakers.
- Uneven Development pairs the work of two fantastic photographers Corinne Silva and Jason Larkin exploring the impact of urbanisation. Make sure pick up one of Jason's free publications available at the gallery.

Dani: 'In the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Museum of London have put on this great exhibition of royal memorabilia and the unique relationship between the monarch and her subjects. Great portraits and curious knick-knacks make for a fun (and also free) day out. ‘At Home With The Queen’ runs until 28th October.'
