SHOWstudio's newest exhibition, 'In Wolves Clothing: Re-imagining the Doll ', addresses the shifting perceptions of the doll, realised by a range of contemporary artists and creatives including Michael Baumgarten, Barbie, Marina Bychkova, Nancy Fouts, Emma Gibson, Nick Knight, Laurie Simmons & Peter Jensen, Lone Siggurdson, Viktor & Rolf and Andrew Yang. The dolls demonstrate innocence cloaked in the shroud of high fashion. The varying approaches of these practitioners to the doll sum up the paradox of a sheep in wolves' clothing.

In addition to the exhibition, will broadcast performances from the LiveStudio in Bruton Place by Wendy Bevan, Rubbish Finger Puppets and others. These objects made during the LiveStudio will then be exhibited in the Shop.
