Joining us for our next event on 31 May, this month’s Nicer Tuesday panelists are experts in disruption.
Fresh from the publication of his new book Failed It!, creative director Erik Kessels will be chatting about how to morph mistakes into creative projects. Expect invaluable life advice from this esteemed ad man plus side-splitting anecdotes on real life cock-ups.
Kathryn Ferguson’s films for the likes of Chloé, Nike and Lady Gaga feature a sharp aesthetic sense while tackling big issues like gender equality, body positivity and aging. At Nicer Tuesdays she’ll discuss her recent projects, using fashion film as a vehicle for social change and her role as Selfridges’ resident film director.
London-based studio Builders Club will spill the beans on their latest project, a film about little-known artist Robert Ruskin. The team were given unparalleled access to Ruskin’s six-decade spanning archive plus rare interview time at his studio on the South Coast, making for a ground-breaking snapshot of this elusive talent.
Described as “_J-17_ meets Private Eye”, fashion publication Mushpit is a homage to the style and sass of teen mags with an added note of very adult satire. Now on their eighth issue, founders Bertie Brandes and Charlotte Roberts will unpick their unique brand of political fashion, ad-free publishing and the joys of an agony aunt column.
Tickets are available now for 31 May.
31 New Inn Yard
Doors open at 7pm and talks start at 7.30pm until 9pm.
