The best selling author of ‘Ugly: The Aesthetics of Everything’ will explore our idea of beauty and its constant flux; shaped by shifts in taste and style. Our obsession with beauty, Bayley will argue, precludes its attainment – and ugliness is a valuable necessity.
The setting of Selfridges Beauty Salon is archly relevant: this wonderland of cosmetics and "miracle treatments" symbolises the contemporary values challenged by Bayley.
