In collaboration with the Paul Mellon Centre, Deller (who is one of CR’s Creative Leaders 50) has invited artists, designers, musicians and writers to join him to explore the “look of music” through presentations, conversation and discussion across a series of talks in January in various London venues. Tickets cost just £5.98.
The idea for this series was inspired by Tom Crow’s Mellon Lectures Searching for the Young Soul Rebels: Style, Music, and Art in London, 1956–1969 which drew on the creative relationships between art and music.
On January 24, the brilliant Es Devlin (also a CR Creative Leader), who has has created live shows with Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jay Z, U2 and Adele among many others, as well as designing the London Olympic closing ceremony and the Rio Olympic opening ceremony, will discuss designing space for music and lyrics. Her talk will be at 180 The Strand, WC2R 1EA.Tickets here
