Description

London’s Red Gallery & Ourhistory Archives launches its CLUB CULTURE exhibition series on Wednesday the 3rd of Oct at UK institution fabriclondon nightclub. For 3 hours only, this infamous venue will be transmuted into a live arts-exhibition space, before heading off to tour Europe: Berlin, Milan, Ibiza, Paris and Manchester.

fabric is the perfect location to exhibit these archives, presenting the fabric space as an experience opened up to all and allowing those who have never visited the club to experience the space in a different context. The 3 hour event-based London exhibition subverts the standard gallery format to create a lasting memory and a platform for discussion. The audience is encouraged to take pictures, share and engage.

Featuring carefully selected content from the past 15 years of exhibitions, the Red Gallery’s Ourhistory Archives boast exclusive and rarely seen photographs of some of Europe's most exciting club cultural movements - from the inception of Tresor and Berlin techno in the 90's, to Parisian ‘French Touch’ and Spain's La Movida Madrileña. For the first time ever these works will be displayed and curated as one whole inter-connected history.

Individually the photographs from each of these movements tell an amazing story of their own, but when these archives are put together these images begin to narrate a whole new collective history.

Without negating the role of the DJ, these photographs show the importance of the every-day people that participated in these events at bunkers, factories, rooftops, afterhours and beyond. As a viewer, you immediately understand the energy that these photographs capture.

The exhibitions act as a platform to bring together artists, photographers, promoters, adventure-seekers, dreamers and revolutionaries in a collective celebration of music, art and culture.
