AboutNaked Talk, Naked Gifts, Naked Panellists
Wednesday 2nd November
Panel underway 7pm sharp
A panel discussion, in two parts, exploring the different formats facing album art designers today.
Storm Thorgerson will be joined by artist Luke Insect, MOJO picture editor (among many other things) Dave Brolan, and graphic designer and writer Adrian Shaughnessy.
What Happened to Portraits in the Current Climate of Album Design?
Thirty, forty years ago portraits were fundamental to album cover design and for raising the profile of bands through a physical identity.
As musical acts become increasingly anonymous and arguably faceless, we ask where portraits have gone and why album cover designs are increasingly less figurative.
Album Covers: Does Anyone Give a Fuck Anyway?
Do album covers matter? Do we like them or value them? What's their function anyway?
Storm Thorgerson will be present at the event and will be voicing his views.
There will also be an opportunity to get involved in the discussion and challenge our panellists with questions.
This event is free but booking is essential as places are limited.
