The Hoodie Exhibition

The Hoodie
This exhibition explores the role of a fashion garment as a socio-political carrier. The hoodie tells many stories – tales of social inequality, youth culture, subculture, police brutality, racism, privacy, fear and style.  Popularised by Champion in the 1930s, the hoodie was a practical solution for workmen; it is now, arguably, Western Fashion’s last truly political garment.

Marine Hugonnier: Travel Posters
A new body of work Marine Hugonnier, ‘Travel Posters’ is a series of
large format images exploring the acclaimed Pan Am advertising campaign designed by Yvan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar in 1971 and photographed by Magnum's photographers. By looking at their appearance on the net and comparing their loss or addition of substance - Hugonnier's work shows how these images, although apparently all similar, are in effect all different.
