Regulars / Nicer Tuesdays

Tickets are now available for Nicer Tuesdays April!

We are excited to announce the line-up for Nicer Tuesdays April which will be taking place, as ever, on the last Tuesday of the month – 30 April. It’s not one to be missed as we’ll be hearing from typographers Dinamo, art director and publisher Ben Ditto, painter Alice Tye, and director of photography Rina Yang.

Tickets are now available for the evening, but if (for some reason) you need a little more persuading, here’s a sneak peek of each speaker’s talk.

Edit on 24 April Unfortunately, Rina Yang is no longer able to attend April’s event but we’re super excited to announce that, in her place, the Nicer Tuesdays crowd will be treated to a talk by photographer Yushi Li. See below for more information about Yushi and her work.

Flying over from the continent to join us in east London this month is Dinamo, a type design agency with bases in Berlin and Basel. Founded by Johannes Breyer and Fabian Harb, the studio has garnered a reputation as the go-to guys for all things variable and has worked with clients including Tumblr, Warp Records and Nike.

In a month’s time, Johannes and Fabian will be taking us through the creation of their type design tool Dinamo Dark Room, a tool to expose the design flaws of a variable font through testing its technical properties. They will also be touching on the various iterations of one of their most recent fonts, Whyte.

Earlier this year, London-based painter Alice Tye exhibited a series of paintings at Mother’s Redchurch Street offices. Titled Mono No Aware the series features beautiful moments captured on a trip to Japan, including everything from cherry blossom to neon signs to the less recognisably-Japanese and mundane scenes like a cyclist crossing the road, or the sun beginning to set over a hill. In her talk at Nicer Tuesdays April, Alice will be talking through her experience of exploring the country, and translating that experience into paint on a canvas.

A Graduate back in 2013 when she completed her studies at Camberwell College of Arts, Alice has gone on to produce commissioned pieces for The Gourmand, The Guardian Literary Review, and Airbnb alongside a plethora of personal works.

Ben Ditto is the creative mind behind Ditto, a publishing house based in east London covering subculture and fashion, which he founded in 2009. Over the years, Ditto has released myriad publications, all of which reflect Ben’s strong and specific interest and aesthetics. Alongside this work, Ben runs other ventures, one of which was Future Artefacts a project that explored the role of physical media in today’s society.

Towards the end of last year, Dazed Media announced the launch of a new platform, Dazed Beauty, a community platform dedicated to “redefining the language and communication of beauty”. Since then, Dazed Beauty has solidified a unique aesthetic and approach to representing this world, including releasing a printed manifestation that saw Kylie Jenner, Kate Moss and Travis Scott (as centaurs) and among its cover stars. At Nicer Tuesdays April, Ben will be talking through his involvement in the project as art director and creative consultant.

Yushi Li, originally from China, is a photographer now based in London. Currently working towards her PhD at the Royal College of Arts and one of our Ones to Watch for 2019, her work hones in on intimacy and agency in the digital world.

She will be joining us to talk through her two works: My Tinder Boys and Your Reservation is Confirmed. The former saw her included in the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 exhibition and consists of portraits of men she contacted via Tinder, each naked in their own kitchen. Your Reservation is Confirmed, however, while also featuring a line-up of naked men, sees Yushi interacting with them in various Airbnbs, documenting her experiences in a somewhat hilariously mundane series.

Get your tickets at the above link and, as always, doors open at 6:30 pm.
