For the first time in Italy: Red Hook Labs with the exhibition Labs New Artists II
Landing in Italy for the first time, one of the most important fringe events of this year’s Photo Vogue Festival: Red Hook Labs is coming to BASE from 15 to 18 November thanks to a collaboration with @guccibeauty and bringing with it Labs New Artists II, an exhibition exploring contemporary cultural aesthetics through the works of twenty-five emerging international photographers.
A group of photographers hailing from all over the world, currently without gallery or agency representation, by a jury of leading fashion and photography professionals: this is Labs New Artists II. An unprecedented selected kind of exhibition, providing emerging artists with an opportunity – first in New York, then in Oslo and soon in Milan – to show their pieces to the general public, industry professionals and collectors.
The project will continue thanks to support from the jurors, who will act as mentors for a year, each following the artistic career of one of the selected photographers.
For the Milan leg of the exhibition’s run, the collaboration with @guccibeauty has also engaged the involvement of one of this year’s artists – Chase Middleton – in the creation of dedicated pictures reinterpreting the Gucci Bloom fragrances, which will appear on vogue.it.
The exhibition features more than eighty visionary pieces created through experimentation with fresh aesthetic techniques in the photographic medium, leading the public through a process of provocative image making.
