SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution exhibitionMonday, 15 June 2009
Fashion photographer Nick Knight will launch SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution at London's Somerset House. The Exhibition will open during London Fashion Week and run until 22 December.
Curated in collaboration with Somerset House curator Claire Catterall, former SHOWstudio Editor in Chief Professor Penny Martin and Alistair O'Neil, the ambitious exhibition will showcase around twenty of SHOWstudio's groundbreaking projects created over the past nine years, grouped into three key themes: 'Process', 'Performance' and 'Participation'.
Fashion Film will run as a central thread throughout the exhibition, reflecting SHOWstudio's ongoing commitment to pioneering the new medium. Echoing its long-standing reputation for revealing the processes of fashion image-making via live broadcast, a photographic studio will be located within the exhibition space allowing visitors to witness, first hand, shoots by Nick Knight and other leading photographers.
