BRAD ELTERMAN "DOG DANCE" at Milk Gallery, New York

Brad Elterman's Dog Dance is a collection of Elterman's iconic work that effortlessly captures the gritty glamour of the late ’70s and early ’80s that’s so often imitated today. Brad was friends with everyone who was anyone and those he wasn’t close with, he’d find them at a party and shoot them anyway. Those were the days when rock stars didn’t care about public relations or crafting a brand. Photo Elise Gallant

"IN DREAMS: DAVID LYNCH REVISITED" A LIVE HOMAGE TO THE MUSIC FROM DAVID LYNCH FILMS at the Barbican, London

In Dreams brings together a stellar cast of singers including with Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Mick Harvey, Jehnny Beth (Savages), Cibo Matto, Sophia Brous, Stealing Sheep and Stuart Staples (Tindersticks) to reinterpret classic songs from David Lynch films. From the romantic songs of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, to the violence of iconic scenes in Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart or Lost Highway, sound is a vital component of Lynch's films – it’s in the wind, in the air, and in the people’s thoughts; his carefully chosen songs conveying his characters’ mental states. A superb band assembled and led by musical director David Coulter will be performing landmark instrumental tracks and exciting new versions of songs from his films. The event takes place on June 20th at the Barbican, London. Click here to buy tickets

JONAS UNGER "AUTOPORTRAITS" at Galerie Derouillon, Paris

Galerie Derouillon presents the solo exhibition Autoportraits by Jonas Ungar on view until May 21st. "My goal with my Portrait photography is to get an intimate and more or less natural image of the people I shoot. Something that everyone can relate to, something banal, in between actions, where the people are at ease. So I started to let the people I photograph take pictures of themselves. To obtain an image that is not influenced by a third party. It is only the person and the camera, very close up, nobody around giving directions or being influential. The result is a very intimate insight" - Text and photo Jonas Ungar
