1. The Beer Mat Show 96 Peckham High Street, London, SE15 5ED

Running to the end of the month at Peckham's Bun House (where they serve beer, not bread), this sudsy art exhibit involves a slew of Brit talent slapping work onto actual pint coasters, to be scattered about the pub, and "interacted with" (read: drunk off of, scrawled w/ phone numbers, etc.). Masterpieces include an ink sketch of Barbara Castle by Bob & Roberta Smith, Twin Peaks' Laura Palmer by photographer Sarah Baker, and a stenciled "Beer" from Ben Eine, a Mozart of street art who typically works at nacht.
