The London EDITION, the latest from EDITION Hotels has celebrated its new property by forming a new partnership with the online magazine Nowness. The joint venture is marked by a collection of five films that focus on the concept of collaboration. Each film showcases the different values of the EDITION brand including vision, distinction, dedication, passion, and innovation. The values are the titles of each film and are represented through various factors such as the relationship between actor and director in regards to collaboration.
The final two films see Johnnie Shand Kydd focus on art and music. The fourth film features Tracey Emin and Harland Miller in their studios. The pair collaborated on a painting, which forms the basis of an initial discussion; however, the conversation naturally progresses to the wider subject of collaboration within the art world. The final film is saved for singer-songwriter Solange Knowles who discusses visual arts within the world of music with Nigerian artist Toyin Odutola, who has exhibited her portraits of Solange in her latest solo show at Jack Shainman New York.
