Record Club

In association with The Vinyl Factory

'When I die just keep playing the records.' Jimi Hendrix

On the theme of ‘records I like to dance to,’ this month’s Record Club guest is Alice Rawsthorn, the design critic of the International Herald Tribune, the global edition of the New York Times. Alice is the author of an acclaimed biography of Yves Saint Laurent, and her latest book, ‘Hello World: Where Design Meets Life’ explores the changing role of design in our lives, past, present and future. A prominent broadcaster and public speaker, Alice is a trustee of Arts Council England, the Michael Clark Company and the Whitechapel Gallery, and chairs the board of trustees of London’s innovative Chisenhale Gallery. An honorary senior fellow of the Royal College of Art, Alice has served on numerous cultural juries including the Turner Prize for contemporary art, the Stirling Prize for architecture, the British Council’s selection panel for the Venice Architecture Biennale, the BAFTA film and television awards and the Buckminster Fuller Challenge, ‘socially-responsible design's highest award.’

‘This is the Age of Design and we will have our bible.’ Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, on ‘Hello World’
