The talk is gonna be a little peak behind the curtain on how we made my recent music video for Bonobo.

From the project you’re talking about, what aspect will people not be expecting to hear?

I think people will be surprised to hear about the ridiculous amount of labour that went into pulling the idea off.

What’s the one aspect of the project you can’t wait to tell the audience more about?

I’m just looking forward to getting a bit geeky and talking tech about how the project happened!

Mirka Laura Severa

Write a one-sentence trailer for your talk at Nicer Tuesdays.

The talk will give an insight into the process of my image creation and highlight my latest project for which I use snowmen as models.

From the project you’re talking about, what aspect will people not be expecting to hear?

The methods I use to create pictures – basically from a sketch on paper, to set design, to photograph, but also the diversity of topics. I love to think of ideas for images, whether it’s about luxury handbags or mattresses.

What’s the one aspect of the project you can’t wait to tell the audience more about?

The circumstances under which the project was created.

Olivia Ahmad

Write a one-sentence trailer for your talk at Nicer Tuesdays.

An insight into the work of Jo Brocklehurst, the British artist dubbed the chronicler of club culture.

What aspect will people not be expecting to hear about Jo’s work?

Jo Brocklehurst’s images of London’s punks have become an iconic record of 1980s street style, but that was a small part of a prolific and fascinating career. She recorded avant-garde theatre performers in Germany and drew at the Blitz Club in the 1970s and in London’s fetish clubs in the 1990s.
 
What’s the one aspect you can’t wait to tell the audience more about?

Jo’s work is relatively little-known and hasn’t been written about or exhibited widely in comparison with some of her contemporaries. I’m looking forward to introducing her to people who’ve never heard of her, and to showing fans of her punk portraits a completely different side of her work.
