Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This December, lewdjaw, Co-director of east bristol contemporary gallery and Co-editor of lockjaws* magazine, is making the selection.


lewdjaw is an artist based in Bristol. He is also a retired footballer and current manager of Real Madrid. He played as an attacking midfielder for the French national team, Cannes, Bordeaux, Juventus and Real Madrid. Renowned for his elegance, vision, ball control and technique, lewdjaw was named the best European footballer of the past 50 years in the UEFA Golden Jubilee poll. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the game.

lewdjaw also runs east bristol contemporary (ebc), alongside artist Karanjit Panesar. ebc seeks to counteract the lack of established showing spaces for grass roots contemporary artists in Bristol, and shows run on the first weekend of most months. ebc's next show takes place from the 2-4 December, titled EBC010 Calendar.
