Event description
An ongoing series that brings to the foreground a more rigorous dialogue around contemporary creative practice in a changing London

About this Event

The Craft (18:30)

Speakers: Sam Jacob, Ella Bulley, Shirley Bhatnager and Fernando Laposse

Chair: Debika Ray

How does the act of making imbue an object with meaning? Does it matter who makes an object or can typologies and traditions – developed over time by generations of skilled practitioners – stand on their own without an author? Can drawing on diverse, historic traditions create a hybridity in our design culture that’s more suited to the plurality of the contemporary world?

About Tiipoi Talks

Tiipoi is a London-based design studio and brand doing Indian Design. Tiipoi Talks are an on-going talks programme curated by Manijeh Verghese (Head of Public Programme at the Architectural Association, currently curator of the British Pavilion for Venice Architectural Biennale) and Spandana Gopal (Founder of Tiipoi). This year, Manijeh and Spandana have invited Debika Ray, founder of Clove magazine to co-curate the talks programme.

The talks aim to start new conversations and encourage a deeper and more critical way of asking questions around contemporary creative practice. By inviting a diverse set of practitioners, it hopes to situate these discussions within a more inclusive reading of history and the disciplinary canon we operate within. Through a cross-pollination of different forms of practice and backgrounds, the talks hope to bring to the foreground a more rigorous dialogue around making and sharing work in a changing London.

In continuation of the new series launched this year during London Craft Week, a pair of talks during London Design Festival will bring together designers, artists, architects and cultural commentators with a view to debate the power of objects, crafts-based practice and the role of context in shaping projects and ideas.

Tiipoi’s other talk during London Design Festival is called The Object – The Age of Reuse and features speakers Ruohong Wu, Ishan Khosla, Dal Chodha and Riya Patel.
