LIFT Top Picks 28/10/2016
28th October 2016
When we’re not busy making the LIFT magic happen, we’re usually scrolling through our social feeds and nosing on everyone else’s latest work, so we thought we’d share some of our favourite posts from the last week.
Our friends at our old haunt, the ICA, are hosting a #CultureNow on the #BlackLivesMatter movement today which caught our eye when they posted this article on how institutionalised racism in US policing led to a global movement. It’s an extract from the book they’ll be discussing, Policing the Planet.
On Wednesday, a few of us headed over to the official opening party of Somerset House Studios and stumbled upon Chloe Lamford‘s installation, we took a couple of pics ourselves but her snaps do it much more justice. Chloe was the set designer of The Hamilton Complex in #LIFT2016 and we’ve been fan girl/boying over her work ever since.
Over in Frankfurt, LIFT friend and collaborator Darren O’ Donnell (Mammalian Diving Reflex) has been continuing the Hemsbach Protocol project that experiments with innovative methods of integrating refugees into local communities. We know Darren loves a group selfie so we’re we’re surprised to see this pic!
