Please join us on Saturday 25 November, 5-8pm for a joint launch party with Viscose Journal & Nice Outfit.
The fifth issue of Viscose explores fashion’s multifaceted retail spaces and cultures. With the evolution of shopping in the 20th and 21st centuries as its focus, the issue looks at the shop as a central nexus where communities and identities are continuously produced and re-imagined through commerce. With a special attention to the role of fashion retail within urban spatial politics, we seek out histories of projects—often developed with or by artists—that have embraced the shop as a medium of both possibility and contestation.
Issue 2 of Nice Outfit catalogues the exhibition 'Knock Knock' curated by Felix Choong in 2022 that continued Peter Galassi's exploration of the home in his seminal exhibition 'Pleasures and Terrors of Domestic Comfort' at MoMA in 1991, alongside a collection of essays, interviews, experimental fiction and artworks that resonate with the themes laid out by the exhibition.
