'Say hi in your own language', the Street, 26 October 2016

This week, the Street of the College was filled with greetings from the many different languages of our student body, from Hola to Sawubona!

Grace Wales Bonner (BA Fashion alum) spoke to AnOther magazine about how small the world is and her nomination at the upcoming British Fashion Awards 2016. There’s a good few alumni on the BFA list this year, and our fingers are crossed for all of them.

We went to hospital to see how students from BA Graphics have helped way-finding and comfort in wards.

Hyeji Woo, MA Fine Art graduate and winner of last year’s Red Mansion Prize, wrote about her experience living and working for a month in Beijing (it involved daily drawing as well as armoured tanks).

Pentagram partner Eddie Opara visited the College to talk to students in Graphic Communication Design. His advice included “don’t stay in the same country you were born in”, “a project is never finished… ever” and this gem. Oh, and Graphics continued its busy week with the magCulture Modern Magazine conference (catch up on their highlights here).

The always-excellent Imma, who graduated from MA Fine Art last year, talked to Dazed about her ongoing collaboration with FKA Twiggs and the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series:

And finally, as we prepare for the last weekend of our exhibition Brain Waves, we raise a glass to all who contributed to it being the most visited exhibition in the Lethaby Gallery’s history!
