Following the launch of ‘dunhill Community: Live’, a weekly series of conversations between Creative Director Mark Weston and members of the dunhill Community, the House introduces ‘dunhill Community: Curated’ – a new platform to celebrate art and artists it believes in. From a multiplicity of fields, backgrounds and subject matters, dunhill will celebrate and support its collaborators; sharing their work with the wider community.
The in-feed residency will be centred on monthly themes, where each of the invited curators will select pieces of personal content relating to that subject; showcasing their photographs, words, films or animations on the House Instagram account.
“I instigated the idea of the dunhill community a couple of years ago as a platform and forum to pull together and connect people from different creative fields, to promote a cross pollination of ideas and conversations with those that have shared values of integrity, intuition, insistence and discovery.” – Mark Weston, Creative Director
First in the series, in collaboration with iconic photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, is Paris-based Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert’s book It’s Not About Cars, published by Gallery FIFTY ONE.
Automotive engineering is part of the dunhill DNA and despite cars taking a central role in each shot of this photo-series, their only function is to guide the viewer through Gruyaert’s varied subject matter; characterised by a cinematic framing and a sensitive treatment of colour, form and light.
‘dunhill Community: Curated’ launches on Thursday 18th June.
