Salon Conversations: Collaborations

at the Architectural Association, London : AAIS Salon

26th May 6.30-8.30pm.

AA School Director Brett Steele hosts a conversation between pairs of collaborators who discuss their joint projects as well as the joys and pitfalls of working together. With Dr Ken Arnold (Wellcome Collection) + David Cotterrell (Artist); Patrick Dickinson (film director) + Andrew Graham Dixon (art critic); Richard Wentworth (artist) + Kit Grover (designer); Gavin Turk (artist) + Deborah Curtis (artist).

Set in a former Georgian drawing room in the heart of today's Architectural Association, the exhibition Salon aims to restore the room to its original function as a place of stimulating conversation and the pursuit of knowledge. The AAIS is a new AA programme that gives experienced individuals an opportunity to step away from their existing professional or academic activities and enter the unique AA environment in order to see their own field and interests in a new light.
