Pretty—Ugly is a series of events organised by the second year students of MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martins.

The title Pretty-Ugly is a casual phrase imbued with a range of subtexts: aesthetics and anti-aesthetics, desire and repulsion, interest and disinterest, surface and essence, polish and sincerity. In a sentence: we are interested in exploring a ‘naïve’ aesthetic as it is created by very aware, professional designers.
Through our workshops, exhibition, series of talks and our auction, we hope to raise a critical discussion on the subject of contemporary ‘undesign’.

With Åbäke, Bendita Gloria, Julian Bittiner, Fraser Muggeridge, Hugo Hoppmann, Jas Rewkiewicz, Matthijs van Leeuwen, Mind Design, OK-RM, Roland Früh & Grégory Ambos, Ryan Waller, Sam de Groot, Simon Wald-Lasowski, Surplus Wonder, Zak Kyes
