Hosted by Somerset House and curated by Jefferson Hack and Emma Reeves, the exhibition is an immersive representation of the magazine’s – and the book’s – best bits, featuring original artwork created especially for Dazed & Confused, including Jake & Dinos Chapman’s GCSE work and Sam Taylor-Wood’s 360 revolutionary seconds.
Our most sought-after and cutting-edge content will be displayed throughout five courtyard rooms at Somerset House. The first three act as a chronological journey through Dazed’s visual transformation over the years, with early fashion features and editorial stories leading through to Dazed’s present day aesthetic. The final two rooms house concepts created especially for Dazed by the late Alexander McQueen – Fashion-Able and Saló.
From David Bowie to Björk, Harmony Korine to David Lynch, Kate Moss to Stockhausen and Rankin to Thom Yorke, the roster of the magazine’s subjects and contributing artists are displayed throughout the exhibition. And what’s even better – it’s free admission!
The exhibition runs at Somerset House from November 4, 2011 – January 29, 2012
