Seven Dials plays host to a celebration of art, fashion and design exploring the historically recurring relationship between Sex and Death. Brought to you by avant-garde art and design curators Guts for Garters and Fox & Squirrel – specialists in arts, fashion and vintage lifestyle walks, the ‘Sex & Death’ project sees 20 Earlham Street transformed into a gallery and shop fusion showcasing London’s creative talent alongside a curated selection of one off items, from clothing to furniture and scent to food.
Open from now until early June, Sex & Death will display contemporary works by artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki alongside ancient artefacts depicting notions of sexuality, fertility and the afterlife. The interiors, inspired by Petra Storrs’ innovative set designs, offer the opportunity to explore and purchase exquisite objects of art and design within a visually striking environment.
Events, workshops & talks will also be held in the Earlham street store, offering up a ‘Sex and Death’ approach to dance, fashion and infamous personalities of the area. Events include film screenings, designer workshops, styling master classes and a curated supper. Don’t miss out on exclusive talks throughout the month including celebrity historian Ian Kelly tracing the history of the suit, London’s celebrated collector of vintage clothing, Stelios, discussing the evolution of the black dress and Odette Toilette’s ‘Dirty Perfumes Salon’ to discover the relation between the story of fragrance and wider historical narratives.
