Gucci Brings Cosmic Glamor to London With New Exhibition
Displaying never-before-seen archive pieces.
Located at 180 Studios, the exhibition is set to be curated by British artist Es Devlin, the designer of the original exhibition. Fusing elements of the House’s history with subtle references to the city of London, the reimagined exhibition will showcase the UK’s pivotal role in inspiring Guccio Gucci.
Elsewhere, Italian curator Maria Luisa Frisa will be bringing out a host of new, never-before-seen items from Gucci’s rich archive, to display at the London leg of the exhibition tour. As it travels, Gucci Cosmos aims to “transport the heritage and craftsmanship of the House around the world,” taking visitors on a journey from the beginning of its archive in Florence to the modern-day.
Following London, the exhibition will hit Paris and Kyoto, including distinct elements specific to each city. Gucci Cosmos will open its doors at 180 Studios on October 11, running until December 31, 2023.
