Subversive Design

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

“Subversive Design explores how designers, makers and manufacturers react to the world around them, playing with form, function and materials to create objects that provoke and amuse. For over 200 years craft and design have been used to engage and challenge political and social issues in both obvious and more hidden ways.

The exhibition includes work by a wide range of designers and makers, including Alexander McQueen, David Shrigley, Studio Job, Philippe Starck, Grayson Perry, Richard Slee, Campana Brothers, Vivienne Westwood and Leigh Bowery.”

Amazing work here – the exhibition shows contemporary designers next to the museums historical subversive design collection.
I loved the more political work, I would like to have seen more Brighton contributions.
Well worth a visit – I am already going back for seconds.
