1. Happy Monday! Let's start with some fun stuff. I've started co-hosting a radio show on Know Wave with my friend (and officemate) Madeline Poole, live from our studio in New York. Click here to listen back to the most recent episode of Personal Hotspot - yes, that's the show's name :) - which we co-hosted with our wonderful friend Paloma Elsesser last week.
2. Less fun stuff: We're still not becoming C.E.O.'s at the rate we should be. Sigh. Lessons on why, from women who almost were.
3. As someone who grew up going to Grime raves in London where I was often one of less than ten or so women in the room, it's great to see The Fader celebrate the female figureheads who are pushing the genre forward.
4. Five lessons for success if you want to be an art director, from Fabien Baron (one of the most influential in the game).
5. Really liking the fresh, summery vibe of the first issue of S'ZINE, a new online publication from NY-based make-up artist Sam Addington, which explores different themes through a beauty-focused lens.
6. "No matter what you do for a living, the only thing you’ll get more and more and more of is hard work. So figure out what kind of hard work feels satisfying to you. Learn to enjoy the hard work, and learn to enjoy the times when you’re not working, and you’ll learn to enjoy life itself." This week's 'Ask Polly' is another banger. Read read read.
Focused on the work of black women artists, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 is a must-see at the Brooklyn Museum for the next month or so.
LONDON / U.K.
Photographer Anita Corbin's Visible Girls Revisited showcases photographs of young British women from various subcultures taken in the '80s, alongside new photos of the same women (now in their fifties). It's on tour around the U.K. over the next few months.
Oh how I wish I could attend the Soulection Experience next month. This label and show have provided the soundtrack to my life for the past five years.
