Description

Brintons presents a series of talks in immersive art installation by Shezad Dawood during Clerkenwell Design Week


Keeping creativity in the city
Tuesday 23 May 2017

On the panel will be Jacob Loftus, CEO of General Projects, Candida Gertler, Co-Founder of Outset Contemporary Arts Fund and Director of Studiomakers, Andrew Harris, Co-Director of UCL Urban Laboratory and Matt Yeoman, Director of BuckleyGrayYeoman Architects. The talk will be chaired by James McLachlan Editor of Icon Magazine.

  • Jacob Loftus, CEO General Projects

  • Candida Gertler, Co-Founder OUTSET Contemporary Arts Fund, Director of Studiomakers

  • Andrew Harris, Co-Director UCL Urban Laboratory

  • Matt Yeoman, Director BuckleyGrayYeoman Architects

Chair: James McLachlan, Editor of Icon Magazine


From canvas to carpet
Wednesday 24 May 2017
9 – 10am

This talk will explore the creative and technical process of translating complex artworks and design into carpet. Emma Cassidy, Head of Creative Design at Brintons will be in discussion with contemporary artist and film maker Shezad Dawood, to discuss Dawood’s recent collaboration with the heritage English brand. For the installation Dawood created a triptych of artworks incorporating motifs and themes from his heavily autobiographical archives of work which were then woven in carpet by Brintons. The discussion will be chaired by freelance writer Suzanne Trocmé and take place in the loading bay of Technique 132 Goswell Road.

Panel:

  • Shezad Dawood, Contemporary artist and film maker

  • Emma Cassidy, Head of Creative Design Brintons

Chair: British designer, curator and author Suzanne Trocmé


The fall and rise of Clerkenwell
Thursday 25 May 2017
6 - 7pm

Chaired by Architecture critic, writer and broadcaster, Tom Dyckhoff, this debate uncovers the essential ingredients for a creative community, by charting the transformation of this quintessential case study from declined industrial quarter in the 1980s to today's cultural powerhouse. We bring together key figures from this journey to uncover the conditions necessary to create a successful post-industrial neighbourhood, mirroring the UK's own reinvention from manufacturing to service economy.

Panel:

  • Piers Gough, Director CZWG Architects

  • Sarah Gaventa, Cultural regeneration consultant and commentator

  • James McLachlan, Editor of Icon Magazine

Chair: Tom Dyckhoff, Architecture critic, writer and broadcaster
