Vulgar: a loaded word suggesting exposed ambition defining the limits of good taste. But what or who defines it? And when and how does the once vulgar suddenly become the height of fashion? These are the questions at the heart of the Barbican Art Gallery’s autumn/winter exhibition The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined.
Somerset House is hosting a major exhibition to celebrate the brilliant career of the master hairdresser Sam McKnight, who has been styling fashion shoots, royalty, models and celebrities since the 1970s.
Hair by Sam McKnight is the first major exhibition to examine hair in high fashion. It follows the stylist’s 40 years in the business, during which time he created some of the most iconic looks in popular culture, from Princess Diana to Cara Delevingne, and Chanel to Fendi.
Buried Child is about despair in America. And, although perhaps not the most cheerful of plays, it is both funny and darkly macabre, and likely to be worth the misery just to see the very compelling Ed Harris and his real-life wife Amy Madigan play a desperately unhappy couple on stage.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Sam Shepard is set in 1979, as the US struggles with economic slowdown and political unrest. The story is about a dysfunctional family from rural Illinois, farmers whose land is barren and family broken by tragedy, drink and a family secret.
Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery is holding a retrospective exhibition on fellow YBA Gavin Turk, his first major solo show since 2002.
The exhibition draws entirely from Hirst’s collection of Turk’s work, which he began collecting in 1998, and includes many works being exhibited for the first time.
Turk was one of the artists picked up by Charles Saatchi in the 1990s, and his work was part of Saatchi’s 1997 ‘Sensation’ exhibition at the Royal Academy.
The Design Museum opens its doors at the end of November at its new home on Kensington High Street. The new museum, which has taken over the old Commonwealth Institute building, has three times more space to exhibit in than ever before and, for the first time in its history, has a new permanent collection.
The museum’s new home, which is situated on the edge of Holland Park, brings it into ‘Kensington’s cultural quarter’, near to the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Art and the Serpentine Gallery.
