The Magnum Home features the Magnum at 70 collection from Sedition displayed on screens released in celebration of Magnum’s 70th anniversary. The fifteen iconic photographic and video works are made available for sale as gift cards at the show. The collaboration sees two leading digital arts organisations come together to present collections of from Magnum’s archives. The partnership will involve the launch of collections of carefully selected works to be released as limited editions exclusively on www.seditionart.com over the course of 2017, allowing collectors to be able to view and purchase works on their digital devices.
The Magnum Home also features Just Kids: Magnum Photographers on Youth Culture, an exhibition drawn from Magnum Photos’ archives and curated by Ekow Eshun. The exhibition will explore how Magnum photographers have documented youth culture in Britain and internationally from the 1960s to the present day. With an emphasis on some of Magnum’s most contemporary and intriguing work, The Magnum Home will stage photography in a distinctly domestic environment – a listed Georgian townhouse, opposite the British Museum.
Throughout the building, young designer Yinka Ilori will stage his characteristically vibrant interventions; born of passions for interior design and the bold colours of Nigerian prints and textures, his work has spanned furniture making to full-scale installations: Ilori recently redesigned London’s iconic Africa Centre.
A programme of talks and events will be held throughout the exhibition, alongside a range of unique merchandise presented by Plinth including silk scarves, tote bags and resin badges, and monographs, field notebooks, sketchpads and other print materials supplied by Thames and Hudson.
The Magnum Home will be at 44 Great Russell Street, WC1B 3BN, between May 17th and 21st, and open 11am -7pm Wednesday to Saturday, and 12pm - 5pm on Sunday. Join us for the private view: 6 – 8pm, 16th May 2017. RSVP to attend: email@example.com
