suitcase - Åbäke, Fatima, 2015

DATE: MAR 20, 2016 6:00 – 8:00PM – ADMISSION FREE (TICKETED)

Åbäke is a collective of graphic designers, Patrick Lacey, Benjamin Reichen, Kajsa Ståhl, Maki Suzuki and Charlotte York, whose work focuses on the social aspect of design and the strength that collaboration can bring to a design project.

Since 2009 a wax sculpture named Fatima has accompanied Åbäke on their travels, meeting people of different nationalities and professions in order to learn about the world around her. As part of British Art Show 8, Fatima will assist Åbäke with an exhibition tour and a public talk.

The tour and talk are independent events. Places are limited and booking is required. If you would like to attend both parts of the event please ensure you sign-up to both.

The tour runs from 6 – 6.45pm. Book your free ticket.

The talk runs from 7 – 8pm. Book your free ticket.
