SHOWStudio: Fashion Revolution




 

A major exhibition staged at London’s Somerset House in Autumn 2009, SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution is a retrospective of nine years of online innovation, invention and creation. Based around the themes of ‘Process’, ‘Performance’ and ‘Participation’, the exhibition showcases over twenty projects from SHOWstudio’s archives alongside unique new films, artworks and live fashion shoots and events specifically devised for this groundbreaking exhibition.

The exhibition will open the process of image-making up to the public – by putting a live, working photographic studio within the exhibition space, to be used by top photographers including Knight. He will also shoot 100 portraits of London’s ‘beau monde’; models, actors, musicians and artists – and will show a programme of new Fashion Films, specially commissioned by SHOWstudio for Fashion Revolution.

“SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution will bring fashion to life in a completely new way,” Gwyn Miles, director of Somerset House said. “I hope this exhibition will broaden debate about fashion as an art form and its impact on contemporary visual culture. Our ambition is that Somerset House should reflect current developments in the creative industries and particularly in the field of fashion and design.”
