Wolf & Badger Selfridges Summer Residency Launch

The Wolf & Badger Summer Residency has now launched in Selfridges, Oxford Street! Showcasing collections from some of our new season designers, we are presenting some of the finest art, jewellery and design pieces, alongside an exciting and interactive arts programme curated by Nathalie Levi in conjunction with Salon Contemporary.

Running exclusively from August 12th until August 31st, we held our launch party which was a roaring success. Mouthy, interactive art performances from Jessica Tsang were accompanied by the musical (and very exuberant!) genius of A-Human. Guests meandered through a plethora of our innovative new designers and their collections, and marvelled at unique art works. Monobrowed ladies offered gin & jelly beans and kept the party spirit alive! Selfridges gift bags for each guest and an after party at Whistler Lodge styled Moose Bar, topped off what really was a fantastic evening (photographs are up now on our Facebook page)

Our residency will continue until August 31st and we have a fantastic programme of musicians and artists appearing, we still have so much to come.....

Tuesday 24th & Wednesday 25th August - Bill Aitchinson will be performing, which plays upon the borders of truth and fiction within the field of art, politics, propaganda and entertainment.

Thursday 26th August - Vanessa Harden, Kevin Hill, Ben Fagan will be exhibiting their Beeswax Sculpture and video installation. From 11am to 12pm Joao Noro will be giving a ‘Live Painting’ Performance, and from 12pm onwards Keira Rathbone will be enchanting us with her Typewriter Art Performance.

Friday 27th August - 12pm onwards: Keira Rathbone, Typewriter Art Performance 1pm: Steve McGarrity, Human Plinth Peformance. 8pm: Bull in a Field, a live band will be taking us into the weekend.

Saturday 28th - from 11am – 4pm Natalie Marie Dray will be transforming our Selfridges area into a glorified transmission of desire and want, like a television commercial, but from an Alien broadcast commercial.

4pm: Steve McGarrity, Human Plinth Performance
7pm: Caroline Pooley will be soothing away the shopping madness with her Operatic tones.

Sunday 29th - Sophie Cullinan, Worn, Interactive Sculpture, alongside from 11am onwards, Anna Ricciardi's Mermaid Performance. A truly theatrical event in a space which suits the concerns and sensibilities of the space. In this performance, Anna can evoke both the horrors and the glories of the English sea-side town in the reinterpretation of this myth, as a living, breathing, flirtatious, chocolate-eating mermaid.

1‐1.20pm: Matt Cowan, Performance Jig
1.20‐4pm: Matt Cowan, Performance DJ Set

Monday 30th: The Silent Awkwardstra, Improvised Live Music

So many fantastic performances in store, make sure you come down and experience this temporary artistic oasis.
