HEDMANKLING: Shades Down In Tokyo Town

HEDMANKLING is curator and exhibition designer Sofia Hedman and artistic director and designer Karolina Kling. Shades Down In Tokyo Town is an exhibition of original spectacles and sunglasses created by specially commissioned artists, designers, and craftsmen from Europe and Japan. They were selected by HEDMANKLING for their remarkable artistic, conceptual, experimental skills and their work over a variety of platforms utilising a diverse range of materials. Their charge was to create an imaginary character and base their sunglasses design on that fantastical persona.

Artists exhibiting are Ann-Sofie Back, BCXSY, Bernhard Willhelm, BLESS, Charlie Le Mindu, Helle Mardahl, Henrik Vibskov, Iris Schieferstein, Josefin Arnell, Kling by Kling, Maiko Takeda, ManfreDu Schu, Mykita, Piers Atkinson, SWD/Skyward and Walter Van Beirendonck.

Inspired by the Oliver Goldsmith vintage archive–opened to the public in 2009–the exhibition will include a selection of iconic sunglasses from the company. Revolutionising the concept of eyewear, the Oliver Goldsmith brand introduced acetate to sunglasses production, created humorous and avant-garde designs, and set the bar when it came to eyewear design.

The exhibition will tour to London, Gothenburg and Stockholm during 2011.
