Sat 3rd Dec: SHOWstudio "In Your Face"

SHOWstudio In Your Face has taken over from the Cafe concept in the shop with an incredible list of 39 artists included in the exhibition, crossing many disciplines connected to fashion. Here are images from the private view where models were live in the space to demonstrate the accessories including this iconic Shaun Leane spiky mouth guard from Alexander McQueen's Autumn/Winter 2000 collection 'Eshu' . Alongside famous works such as this and Nick Knight's Devon print and Mapplethorpe nudes are totally new talents commissioned for this term. The portrait watercolours above are a couple of new works by Stephen Doherty who the team discovered when he illustrated live on the walls during Craig Lawrence's recent residency. They are so beautiful, I think this is a brilliant addition to the other classics such as Franko B's embroidered canvas works. Visit the actual premises to see the pieces and make sure to check the brand new re-vamped site bursting with content and information on future projects to unfold in the New Year..................... here. Tune in on Tuesday when Hywel Davies will be interviewing Louise Wilson and Alexander Fury talks to David Koma.
