Passione, disciplina, libertà di espressione: Boss Doms svela la sua visione dell’arte e della vita.

“Le cose succedono esattamente nel momento in cui devono accadere. Non un minuto prima, non uno dopo”. Boss Doms racconta così la sua visione della vita e dell’arte nell’episodio del podcast realizzato in collaborazione con GQ, all’interno di una storia dedicata al rapporto tra tradizione sartoriale e stile personale, regole e sovversione. Una storia che per Boss Doms inizia a dieci anni, quando prese in mano la sua prima chitarra acustica e imparò a suonare da autodidatta, mentre nella sua testa risuonavano i pezzi degli AC/DC, dei Radiohead e dei Led Zeppelin che ascoltava in cuffia al ritorno da scuola. E in questo racconto, l’artista torna fisicamente e metaforicamente a scuola, ricordando l’importanza della disciplina e dell’esercizio quotidiano, ma anche della curiosità e della libertà di sperimentazione. Rock, ma poi pop, techno, musica latina, le orchestre: il produttore discografico, chitarrista e dj romano trae ispirazione da ogni esperienza e la esprime attraverso il suono, i colori, i costumi di scena. Uno stylist della musica, che cuce il suono addosso all’artista: come un sarto, prende le misure con rigore, ma poi sovverte le regole per dare vita a qualcosa di unico.

Reframing The Black Image. Pioneers of The Past in Collaboration with Stance and A Vibe Called Tech.

Made in Partnership with Stance Podcast and Vibe Called Tech and inspired by The North Face and Gucci collaboration, Pioneers of the Past is a celebration of four talents who are remapping and rethinking how the Black image is presented in fine and contemporary art. In this podcast you will hear from four curators and visual researchers who are defining new ways of looking and seeing the Black image in visual arts. Frustrated with the lack of representation on her degree course, Cambridge University student Alayo Akinkugbe started the Instagram account A Black History of Art early last year. Her platform highlights the overlooked Black artists, sitters, curators and thinkers in Art History. Renata Cherlise has been building an extraordinary archive of Black images at BlackArchives.co, redefining who chooses the images preserved and celebrated. Through her work, she builds places where the Black image lives for itself rather than in some kind of abstraction of whiteness. Theo Imani is an Italian Ghanaian medical student and visual researcher with a passion for finding echoes between the African and European image. His Instagram account @theoimani seeks to interrogate the relationship between imagery, teasing the classical and the contemporary to reframe notions of the Black image. Osei Bonsu, International Curator at Tate Modern is an expert in Black, African and diasporic art. His work as an independent curator in Paris and London seeks to challenge institutions and artists to fully represent the range and nuances of black art, pushing the art world to expand their understanding and appreciation. The cover image for this podcast was created by collage artist Jazz Grant. Discover more on https://bit.ly/3ph2NFn Follow Gucci Equilibrium on www.instagram.com/gucciequilibrium/

Young female artists talk about coming-of-age for new scent Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori.

Female friendships, coming of age and the metamorphosis a girl makes into becoming a woman and her authentic self. The themes behind fragrance Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori inspired 15 young female creatives to design and write original works for Gucci’s Instagram. Inside their drawings and images are texts that together tell a story which is sometimes personal, comical and intimate. In this episode, produced in partnership with Man Repeller and their podcast Monocycle, host Leandra Medine sits down with three artists from the project in an eccentric Brooklyn apartment to talk about their work. The artists convey their ideas in diverse ways. Emma Allegretti’s character wants to be like everyone else so she concocts a Acqua Di Fiori potion. She transforms, only to realize her own self is unique and beautiful. Joy Miessi was inspired by her favorite park Hampstead Heath for her series of drawings and words that tell a story about herself and her friends spending time there. Amber Vittoria’s illustrations represent the women around her and her own evolution as a creative.
