Here We Are
Old Sessions House
Here We Are, an exhibition launched by British fashion house Burberry, focused on the work of more than 30 of the best social and documentary photographers from the past century.
The exhibition was curated by President and chief creative officer of Burberry Christopher Bailey and Lucy Kumara Moore with photographer Alasdair McLellan as their co-curator – who will have over 70 of his images featured.
ICA Theatre, London
Photographer Alasdair McLellan presents a collection of archive and unseen images of Palace Skateboards’ renowned team and its extended family in the London skate gang, the Palace Wayward Boys Choir (PWBC). McLellan has been documenting the scene around Palace since its launch in 2009. The exhibition offers a fascinating insight into the characters orbiting the beloved brutalist home of skateboarding on London’s Southbank. This is accompanied by a new video installation from Palace Skateboard’s founder, Lev Tanju. With an idiosyncratically British edge, Tanju’s anarchic videography and McLellan’s tender portraits come together to provide a dynamic picture of London and skateboarding. The show is a celebration of the deep camaraderie found amongst skaters at the Southbank. It is a testament to friendship, non-conformity and a doing-it-yourself attitude.
