WAS IST LOS by Victor Wilde
28 June - 2 July at SOMOS Art Gallery, event in Berlin Fashion Week 2016.
For five days only, Berlin’s SOMOS hosts Los Angeles-based artist and designer Victor Wilde in his first European gallery exhibition. Presented as an interdisciplinary multimedia micro-residency, Was ist los will comprise four consecutive nights of live-streamed performance art, interactive design, and immersive, crowd-sourced happenings spontaneously merging fashion, art, experience, and spectacle.
Taking Berlin as his obsession and inspiration, Wilde will be collecting materials and conspirators across the city itself in preparation for a series of happenings that will feature live painting, original art, on-the-spot fashion shows, film projections, interactive performances, and improvised chaos. The proceedings will be live-streamed and clothing and art sold live online throughout the week.
As the founder, art director, and chief designer of progressive fashion house Bohemian Society, Victor Wilde is known for infusing the methods and attitude of contemporary visual art, especially collage and assemblage of found and non-traditional materials, into his singular hand-made garments -- and vice versa. Often the tumultuous creative process itself takes center stage, as the process of collecting, conceiving, and executing ideas for men, women, and walls takes on a surreal and sexy theatrical flair in which all are invited to instigate.
Was ist los will be viewable across all social media platforms. Follow Bohemian Society and Victor Wilde here:
