Having originally launched at Soho House in Berlin and London Fashion Week, The Store is now expanding with the opening of this creative space and complex of 10 studios, which will house a mix of creative companies including Dazed Media, The Vinyl Factory, The Spaces and FACT magazine, all of whom will share the broadcast studios.
The Store Studios are the new home of London Fashion Week. Last autumn, Store X The Vinyl Factory presented Everything At Once, in partnership with Lisson Gallery. The exhibition featured historical, recent and ambitious new commissions fit for the expansive and unique space, including works by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Ryan Gander, Rodney Graham, Ai Weiwei, Anish Kapoor, Susan Hiller, Shirazeh Houshiary, Richard Long and Stanley Whitney, among many others.
Showing alongside Everything At Once were three site-specific commissions presented by Store X The Vinyl Factory. Among them was a mind-bending new audio-visual installation by Japanese artist and arch data manipulator Ryoji Ikeda and a pseudo-documentary science fiction film acclaimed at this year's Venice Biennale by Canadian artist Jeremy Shaw (shown in collaboration with König Galerie). Atop the roof of Store Studios was a bespoke tent, showing a revisualisation of black American history set to a Kanye West soundtrack by artist Arthur Jafa and presented in collaboration with the Serpentine Galleries.
Other past events at The Store Studios include The Infinite Mix, a critically acclaimed exhibition by the Hayward Gallery in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory in 2016. The space has also hosted Louis Vuitton's Series 3 and fashion shows by Roksanda Ilnic, Christopher Kane and Thomas Tait.
"The future of all space is both the physical experience of being in that space and broadcasting that experience to the world," says Alex Eagle, Creative Director of The Store.
