They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening | Craig Oldham

Talk, Q&A and Book Signing

Wednesday 27th November 2019
Arnolfini, Bristol
£15.00 full price / £13.00 concessions


Join the Arnolfini for a night of 80s counterculture, visual reference and northern humour with Craig Oldham and radical publisher, Rough Trade Books.

Craig is back in Bristol to mark the launch of this latest project – They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening. Paying homage to the iconic science-fiction film, his book represents a visual celebration of this cult classic.

Designed as a perfect replica prop from the film’s synonymous news stand aesthetic, Craig touches on its many themes that are as relevant now as they were then. Politics, art, music, comics, typography, literature, philosophy and film – They Live represents a window into our ever-changing times. With a backdrop of Extinction Rebellion and Brexit, cultural commentators such as street artist Shepard Fairey, explore the film’s influence and impact on our increasingly activist creative community as well as its relevance to us socially, culturally, and politically.
