Photography for the Curious Cyclist Collection by Josephine Jones
Josephine's presentation was part of London Fashion Week 2019 and took place on 15 February in the gallery spaces of New Art Projects London in collaboration with vFd and alongside the VFD10 - Punish The Streets exhibition. This was also the first show in London that featured an all-trans cast, making history and marking an important milestone for trans-inclusivity. Rest in peace, Elie Che.
The exhibition Hair Matters marked a collaboration between vFd and Central Saint Martins. Through public art interventions around Dalston, it examined the social and cultural symbolism of hair, employing a queer perspective. The show featured six young, queer artists including Travis Alabanza, Sadé Mico and Alex Noble, their work ranging from photo manipulations and textiles to ephemera and audio material.
