The Kills headline Diesel X Serpentine Gallery Future Contemporaries Party 2012 17 September 2012! Xx

The Serpentine Gallery and Diesel in association 
with Silencio presented a 
stunning line-up of 
live acts for its Future Contemporaries Party 
on 17 September

This annual fundraiser for the Gallery’s young 
patrons took place on 17 September 2012 
in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012, 
designed by Herzog and de Meuron and Ai Weiwei.

The Kills topped the bill, with Jamie Hince and 
Alice Mosshart delivering dark guitar riffs and 
haunting lyrics on the stage set up infront of the 
white columns of the Serpentine Gallery, 
and against the backdrop of the Herzog and De Meuron 
and Ai Weiwei’s visionary Pavilion.

 the pavilion’s canopy, 
Chicago duo Wild Belle performed an atmospheric 
set of breezy pop hooks and island rhythms. 
There were DJ sets from France-based Brodinski
 and London-based Trevor Jackson, 
who has worked with Soulwax and The Doves. 
They were joined by resident DJ at Silencio Erik Rug.
Food was created by rising culinary stars Isaac McHale

The Party brought together the new generation of artists, 
philanthropists, collectors and opinion formers to 
raise funds for the Serpentine Gallery’s acclaimed art, 
architecture, design, education and public programmes.

The Party was presented by leading fashion 

and lifestyle brand Diesel, 
founded by Renzo Rosso, in association with Silencio,
 the Parisian cultural club conceived 
and designed by David Lynch.

Diesel, well known across the world for supporting 
emerging and established talent in a range of creative fields,
 from music and film to fashion and art, are expanding 
this strand of its work by being the first brand partner 
to support the Serpentine Future Contemporaries.

Silencio is a space for creative exchange and discovery, 
featuring a cinema, an art library, a concert stage, 
performance and lecture spaces, a dance floor 
and a state-of-the-art cocktail bar.

The Future Contemporaries was founded by the Serpentine Gallery 
in 2007 to foster a new generation of philanthropists 
and art collectors under the age of 40, and comprises 
members from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions. 
In return for their support, the Gallery runs a programme of 
special events designed to give unique insight into the contemporary
 art world and nurture a lifelong association with it. 
Future Contemporaries Committee members include:
 Princess Alia Al-Senussi; Leith Clark: Flora Fairbairn; 
Tim Franks; Rebecca Guinness; Liz Kabler; 
Viscount Dan Macmillan; Bobby Molavi; Jake Parkinson-Smith; 
Cristina Revert; Robin Scott-Lawson: Andreas Siegfried; 
Stan Stalnaker; Christopher Taylor; Rose van Cutsem; 
Alexa and Marcus Waley-Cohen and Jonathan Wood.  

Until next time J Xx
