London Underground

I managed to check myself in to The Old Selfridges Hotel yesterday and explore the ICA’s Off-Site project A Journey Through London Subcultures: 1980s to Now. Featuring artists, architects, designers, musicians and a host of creatives from the vibrant worlds of the capital’s alternative scene, the exhibition is a high-energy display of counterculture past and present, set amongst the raw industrial backdrop that is the former hotel in Selfridges department store.
Tom Dixon, St John, Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Chisenhale Gallery and Lucky PDF are a few of the influential names involved in the project, which documents both a time of incredible social importance happening in London throughout the 80s as well as the strong creative dialogue that continues to resonate to this day within the artistic community practising in the capital. 

A Journey Through London Subcultures: 1980s to Now closes this Sunday 3rd November at The Old Selfridges Hotel, above Selfridges Food Hall. For further information visit ICA.

Here are a few details from the exhibition…
