Live Now Sans Couture - Nick Knight / Amanda Harlech / Alexander Fury

10:15 - 20:00 on August 1 2014 BST

Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak founded M/M (Paris) in 1992, having met at art school in Paris. Since then they have worked together as graphic designers and art directors on fashion, music and art projects. Their longstanding creative clients and collaborators include fashion designers Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander and Jeremy Scott, musicians like Bjork, The Micronauts or Benjamin Biolay and more recently, Madonna. M/M's work in the art world ranges from commissions for museums such as the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, to collaborations and exhibitions with artists like Philippe Parreno and Pierre Huyghe, with whom they have also designed the Etienne Marcel Café in Paris in 2001. M/M (Paris) have developed a distinctively unexpected graphic approach, combining free forms within strictly controlled compositions. They view each of their projects as a "conversation" with those who commission them.
