Culture and creativity are at the heart of Selfridges’ DNA. It’s what helps drives us forward and infuses everything we do. After a hugely challenging year, the importance of culture for the good of our livelihoods and the richness it brings to our lives has never been so vital. With this in mind, we’re delighted to launch Super Culture – our ongoing programme of events, films and installations (and much more) celebrating the most exciting ideas in the arts, both here online and in store.

Selfridges Hot Air presents: The Super Culture podcast

Tune into our new podcast series, hosted by writer Natty Kasambala, which explores the power of culture to inspire positive change.

Culture is something that can be hard to define, yet it has the power to absorb and excite us. It’s a fundamentally human thing that we all feel and understand. Our Super Culture podcast tells the stories of remarkable people who are inspiring change, joy and positivity in their artistic fields. We’ll hear from them about their early influences and the cultural moments that have shaped their careers, tastes and outlooks on life.

SUPER CULTURE: THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL

Words are extremely powerful, and sometimes it only takes a few to make us feel something special.

In this episode, we speak to artist Lakwena about her mural that caught Beyoncé's eye, the importance of making public spaces beautiful, and why words are at the heart of everything she does.

Super Culture art installations

As part of our Super Culture celebrations, we asked artists and friends of Selfridges to create artworks for our permanent exhibition space, The Selfridges Art Block, and our Duke Street windows at Selfridges London. 

The Art Block, Selfridges London

To celebrate the launch of the fifth artist to exhibit at The Art Block on G at Selfridges London, we caught up with William Darrell to find out more about ‘Restless Bulbs and Rotting Goodness’, his mind-bending kinetic sculptures crafted from recycled plastic. Read on to meet the artist and discover more about our ongoing collaboration with Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Super Culture artists windows, Selfridges London

For Super Culture at Selfridges, we teamed up with three incredible artists and friends of Selfridges – Stacie Woolsey, Hamed Maiye and Jesse Pollock – to create works inspired by community, pleasure and new realities. Their thought-provoking artworks are on display in our Duke Street windows at Selfridges London. Read on to find out more their work, and meet our current Picton Studios artist-in-residence, Emma Witter.
