Coinciding with their major solo exhibition ‘Degrees of Truth’ at Sir John Soane's Museum, join artists Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell in a special evening of conversation, as they speak to Tony Chambers. The one-hour conversation will be followed by a drinks reception and an opportunity to explore the exhibition, set across all floors of the museum.
For over four decades, Langlands & Bell’s work has explored the complex web of relationships linking people and architecture and the coded systems of communication and exchange we use to negotiate a fast changing technological world. Their art ranges from film, video and digital media projects to sculpture, installation, and full-scale architecture; they have exhibited internationally since the early 1980s including exhibitions at Tate Britain and Tate Modern in London, the Venice Biennale, State Hermitage Museum, MoMA and CCA, Kitakyushu, Japan.
Tony Chambers is a Creative Director, Design Consultant and Editor. From 2003 to 2018 he served as Brand and Content Director, Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director of Wallpaper* Magazine, for which he still contributes. He is the Founder and Director of design consultancy TC & Friends and has worked with creative luminaries such as Jean Nouvel, Philippe Starck, Louise Bourgeois, Karl Lagerfeld and Zaha Hadid.
The one-hour conversation will be followed by a drinks reception in the north and south drawing rooms. Doors open early to allow guests an opportunity to see the exhibition ‘Degrees of Truth’ and to explore the Museum, dramatically lit after hours.
