Nagu iga aasta tavaks, antakse meile ükspäev terve kursusega vabaks ning lastakse kõik koos ühe perena Londoni peale lahti, et avastada midagi uut. See aasta läksime me vanasse "mahajäetud" Selfridges'i hotelli (mis asub btw, toidumaailma peal?!), kuhu on hetkel üles seatud pop-up näitus Londoni subculture kõrgajast 1980- kuni tänaseni. Ühesõnaga väljapanekutel on näha kõike, mis noorte-kultuuris oli pop ja IN.
Näitus oli täiesti minu-teetass, kuna hetkel on meil endal ka käsil projekt, mille raames peame looma oma brändi ja leidma eeltööd tehes - mis on meie ajastu olemus? Kes olen mina, kui bränd?
Mis nagu ette võite kujutada, on omette next-level-hard tegevus, aga õnneks nähes erinevaid disainereid ja teisi kultuuritegelasi, ennast 1x1 meetri kastis ära "defineerituna", sain kinnitust, et mitte vähemalt võimatu ettevõtmine.
Igatahes, kes Londonisse lähiajal satub, selle näituse kohta saate infot SIIT!
"A major new project at The Old Selfridges Hotel in London as part of a series of off-site events this summer, A Journey Through London Subculture: 1980s to Now illustrates a perceived thread of creativity between the post-punk era and the present day - a legacy that underpins London's incredible creative potential in the present.
Gilbert & George, John Maybury, House of Beauty & Culture, Tom Dixon, Jeffrey Hinton, Bodymap, St John, Alexander McQueen, Martino Gamper, Julie Verhoeven, Giles Deacon, Charlie Porter, Chisenhale Gallery, Lucky PDF, Vogue Fabrics Nightclub, Sibling, J W Anderson, Bethan Laura Wood, Matthew Darbyshire and Louise Gray are amongst the 60 influential figures from London’s creative scene involved in the project.  
The project occupies the vast first floor of The Old Selfridges Hotel, a cavernous industrial raw space, situated on Orchard Street directly above the Selfridges Food Hall. The project entrance is situated next to Selfridges Food Hall.
A Journey Through London Subculture: 1980s to Now seeks to make connections between London’s creative past and the present day using photographs of members of ‘The House of Beauty and Culture’ mudlarking on the banks of the River Thames as a starting point. For example, was early YBA, in fact, an extension of 80s DIY culture? Is there a connection between Gilbert & George through the artist/poet David Robilliard to Trojan and Leigh Bowery and from there to Alexander McQueen? In design terms, does the salvage work of Andy The Furniture Maker connect to Martino Gamper’s reassembled chairs or the designs of Bethan Laura Wood? Can we extend the social influence of former nightclubs to artist collective LuckyPDF, or venues like Vogue Fabrics and Cafe OTO, or Iain R Webb’s styling for Blitz magazine to the collections of J W Anderson or Louise Gray?"
