Stage of the Art posters, Maxemilian Nilsson

Stage of The Art is a monthly event that looks to set up musical exchanges between international art centres

Each month a programme of live music is presented either in London’s ICA or in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The idea is that music fans travel to different cities to see their favourite bands play intimate shows in art galleries, thus discovering new cities and cultures in a musical context. The posters for the events, which began in February this year, are designed by Max­emilian Nilsson and each features music-related photography by fashion designer Hedi Slimane, courtesy of Galerie Almine Rech.

Creative Futures Bursary Project: Digital Club

Stills from Digital Club’s film, Mare Street E8, which the duo created using their Creative Futures bursary
For almost 20 years, Creative Review has been encouraging the next generation of talented creatives through our annual Creative Futures scheme in which we celebrate the promise of a selection of emerging talent in visual communications.
This year’s crop of Futures were selected by the CR editorial team – our only criteria were to find indiv­iduals or teams who we feel have an extremely bright future ahead of them and who are indicative of the future direction of the industry.
Just before Christmas, each of our selected Futures gave a talk at one of three Creative Futures events. We invited everyone coming along to the talks to bring a piece of work with them – an image, some text, even a piece of music. We then asked each of our Futures to produce a new piece of work responding to the experience of being selected for the scheme, giving their talk and to the work brought along. These projects were funded by a bursary provided to each Future by CR and PlayStation. Over the next few days we will be posting up the resulting pieces of work – below is Digital Club’s animation…
