<h2>Paola Antonelli</h2>'s Work

Paola Antonelli

The curator, writer and editor is best known for being senior design curator at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and has curated and written a number of exhibitions and articles for the industry too. A former lecturer at Harvard University Graduate School of Design’s programme, Paola has crafted an impressive career to date centred on a design philosophy that appreciates the role of design in everyday life. Her latest endeavour touching on this is Design Emergency, a new project created in collaboration with design critic Alice Rawsthorn. It began as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic in a series of Instagram Live stories and rapidly expanded into its own platform exploring the role of design in building a better future. Telling stories from a range of industry experts including architects, engineers and scientists, Design Emergency interrogates past responses to crises, traumas and tragedies. At this month’s Nicer Tuesdays, Paola will further discuss the new platform with our audience in an in-depth Q&A exploring some of the most pressing issues we are facing today.

<h2>Poulomi Basu</h2>'s Work

Poulomi Basu

Poulomi Basu is an Indian transmedia artist, photographer and activist, advocating for women’s rights in her powerful work. For the past nine years, she has been working on an Indian docu-fiction titled Centralia, a photographic exploration into the little-known forests of central India. Here, she’s documented an under reported conflict between the indigenous tribal people and the Indian state. Having exhibited at Arles, the acclaimed series has awarded Poulomi the Louis Roederer Discovery Award 2020 and she’s been shortlisted for the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2021. The powerful work which sheds light on the violence inflicted upon indigenous communities has also been pulled together in a new book of the same title. At January’s Nicer Tuesdays, the photographer will take us through the striking project and the important stories impacted by the conflict.
