On reaching 120 %
Combining tech, culture, music, fashion, design and more, 'The Art of Drive' is a global platform, built to enable dreams and inspire them to become reality. It sees Porsche, Vogue and WIRED come together in collaboration for the first time, to empower dreamers through informative and inspiring experiences. 'The Art of Drive’s' trailblazers – of which Annie Clark is one – are here to inspire the next generation to achieve their goals.
“Success is a lot of things. And I think it changes as you go on,” Annie Clark opens. “To me, success means getting to make work that I 120% believe in. Making the best work I can possibly make and feeling proud of it. And to make great things for the next generation.”
My Art of Drive is this irrepressible urge I have to make things. I always feel like the next thing I make is going to be the best thing I make. Really going to the point where you know that you truly gave it your everything.
Learn from luminaries like St. Vincent
With that in mind, the Art of Drive’s Mentors will take Clark’s insight as a launch pad for the platform’s interactive talks, panels and events. Harnessing both inspiration and education, the aim is to inform and ignite the audience’s own dreams and motivations.
An award-winning mind that’s driven by change
Since, she’s collaborated with world-renowned artists and become the first woman in 20 years to win a Grammy for Best Alternative Album. We could go on. Clark is without doubt one of the most versatile and accomplished artists of our times.
Elsewhere, Clark’s latest album, Daddy’s Home, sees her morph into a ’70s-inspired glam-rock icon, complete with blonde wig. “You’re truly just playing with your own energy to become who you want to be for a minute, or a year,” she explains.
Follow your dreams. Not other people.
“I hope to inspire others by letting them know that it's absolutely fine to be themselves, whoever they are,” she says. “To try to be the best version of themselves – not by copying others, but by honing their own instincts and being true to themselves.”
