Presentation: 'The Importance of Alternative Venues'
Hello from Fish and Chips HQ!
As the project commences it's final week we have one final treat in store for you! This upcoming Thursday, 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!', will be bringing one final event to Vienna in the form of a talk by Mischa Twitchin from the UK. Mischa will be discussing the importance of alternative venues within the Arts and this presentation is a must see for any art, design and theatre enthusiast and perfect for students of all ages.
'SHUNT collective and SHUNT Lounge co-founder Mischa Twitchin talks about a special project that has revitalised the London art and design scene, that has recently come to an abrupt end. Under London Bridge station, under Victorian arches, the most experimental in theatre, dance, performance, art, fashion and design happened. Few seasons ago as one of London Fashion Week official venues it has witnessed collections by Gareth Pugh and Nathan Jenden, the space has housed a promenade performance 'Tropicana' and 'Amato Saltone' by the collective, seen Madonna filming one of her videos, Akhe leave their mark on the space and Franko B and Ron Athey's 'Visions of Excess'. As well as offering a platform for young visual artists and designers, Shunt Lounge was also a perfect place for testing ideas and an opportunity of collaboration.'
The talk is free to attend and kicks off at 6pm on Thursday 9th September at 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!' Everyone is welcome!
We look forward to seeing you there and joining us for one final fling before Fish and Chips closes it's doors for the last time and waves farewell to Vienna!
