An exhibit of customised standard issue denims by artists including painters, sculptors, weavers, photographers, costume makers and multidisciplinary artists. Featuring designers Scanlan Theodore, Denimsmith, Just Jeans, Nudie Jeans, First Principles Denim, Martin Grant, Levi’s® and Neuw Denim and artists Heidi Yardley, Anastasia la Fey, Annie Mertzlin, Lorena Laing, Jane Burton, Lisa Roet, Lyn-Al Young and SZN.

 

This garment has been embellished in homage to the great avant-guard writer and experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger. Yardley has been inspired by Anger’s exploration of the Occult in his films ‘Scorpio rising’ and ‘Lucifer rising’ as well as the salacious stories in his famous book ‘Hollywood Babylon’. The words ‘Hollywood Forever’ refer to Hollywood Forever Cemetery in L.A, a resting place for some of the most famous movie stars of the 20th century and a place of fascination for Anger.
