This new ex­hi­bi­tion, fea­tur­ing seven artists, takes this hash­tag as its en­try point and ex­plores the move­ment through a va­ri­ety of dis­ci­plines. Free en­trance. Gallery open 10am to

We bet you didn’t know that the L’Or­marins Queen’s Plate has been listed as one of the world’s top five race days by a Bri­tish news­pa­per, The Tele­graph.

It ranks along­side such il­lus­tri­ous races as the Prix de l’Arc de Tri­om­phe (Paris), the Breeder’s Cup (Cal­i­for­nia), the Mel­bourne Cup and the Dubai World Cup. The dress code is blue and white. Women are en­cour­aged to wear a hat or fas­ci­na­tor and men must wear jack­ets and ties, cra­vats or a smart open-neck shirt and trousers.
