      WEDF Talk // Where 80’s counter culture meets graphic design – Craig Oldham presents a window into our ever-changing times

      Talk, Q&A and Book Signing Wednesday 27th November 2019Arnolfini, Bristol7-9pm£15.00 full price / £13.00 concessions Join us for a night of 80s counterculture, visual reference and northern humour with Craig Oldham and radical publisher, Rough Trade Books. Craig returns to Bristol to mark the launch of this latest project – They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening. Paying homage to iconic science-fiction film, the book represents a visual celebration of this cult classic. Designed as a perfect replica prop from the film’s synonymous newsstand aesthetic, Craig touches on its many themes that are as relevant now as they were then. Politics, art, music, comics, typography, literature, philosophy and film, They Live represents a window into our ever-changing times. With a backdrop of Extinction Rebellion and Brexit, cultural commentators such as street artist Shepard Fairey, explore the film’s influence and impact on our increasingly activist creative community as well as its relevance to us socially, culturally, and politically. Listen to an irreverent and insightful design deconstruct of the film and its design references and learn how Craig explored the key visual influences in order to turn the film into a book. We’ll kick off with another brilliant warm-up act and round up with Q&A, book signing and drinks in the bar. Looking forward to seeing you there!
