Artist, director, costume designer & photographer for film and stage - Tim Yip is a world-renowned artist with a list of accolades that has been growing since his first art director role for A Better Tomorrow (1986).

Coining his aesthetic concept of 'New Orientalism' to the mainstream forefront, Tim Yip's work draws upon ancient cultures to reshape ideas of Orientalism. Whether that be in projects such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), the 2004 Beijing Olympics or his rendition of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (2019) with director Yang Liping, the Academy Award-winning multi-threat leaves onlookers awe-struck through his approach to art, costume design, theatre and more. 

In 2001, Tim won the Oscar for Best Art Direction, and British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award for Best Costume Design for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), becoming the first Chinese person to receive these accolades. Most recently, Tim announced the Love Infinity (2022) film, documenting key figures within London's art scene.

Join us with our talk with the one and only Tim Yip - inspiration guaranteed.

Jewellery that tells a tale...

 Within the world of luxury jewellery, Italian jewellery designer Francesca Villa celebrates objet trouvés - discarded relics that have their value rediscovered. Working with peculiar artefacts that hold sentimental and historical importance, Francesca brings new-found life into these relics by embedding precious gems onto their surface. Finding these items within the corners of antique shops, flea markets and miscellaneous spaces, there is an unparalleled precious intimacy to Francesca's jewellery.

Through her limited-edition pieces, Francesca uses the past as a source of inspiration and creates a micro-universe surrounding the jewellery. As her clients are left in awe of the jeweller's craft and her passion for storytelling, you cannot help but be engrossed with the lost history of each piece. And while you may try to retrace and delve deeper into the story, Francesca's jewellery remains the catalyst and the root of all the magic and mystery.

Be prepared for an inspirational tale with the one-of-a-kind Francesca Villa!

Running since 2017, the annual Sarabande Summer Group Show is the highlight of the Sarabande year, with each roster of contemporary artists showcasing matchless creativity. With each group show, major London galleries, curators , patrons, artists, journalists, and collectors grin and bear the summer heat to witness the exceptional disciplines of each Sarabande artist and what they have created during their residency.

SOON THIS WILL BE OVER is the open love letter of the edited collective of Sarabande contemporary artists. It celebrates the relationships and unique experiences that the residency has invited, the ways in which their practices have grown and in a bittersweet way, how the residency is fleeting like a season. The show echoes Sarabande's mission to support and champion the ever-growing list of novel practices and lead a path for the next generation of artists.

Ten Sarabande artists, one show and a moment that will stay in your minds forever.

We invite you to SOON THIS WILL BE OVER.

12 JULY

19:00 - 21:00

Contracts can be finicky - complex jargon and terminology that many creatives and designers can find hard to understand. With hopeful thoughts and immense promises, the artist signs the contract and gradually, things start to go sour until they are left between a rock and a hard place.

That’s when the legal expertise of Baker Mckenzie comes into the frame to help guide you before you have sealed your fate.

Join Sarabande and Baker Mckenzie in this practical talk on contracts - and remember the cardinal rule: READ YOUR CONTRACTS!
