Velorose + Friends - Old is the New New
Inspired by the contemporary relevance of reuse and upcycling, the apparent decline in Xmas 2019 sales being attributed to the rise in environmental consciousness, and shoppers opting for quality over quantity, or design and craftsmanship over fast fashion, Velorose unveils its latest (re)collection of 'oldies but goodies', with help from Plinth and Early Bird Vintage.
Familiar tropes, forms and materials are revisited by artists as varied as Kit Allsopp, Fritz Nagel, Cornelia Parker, Bridget Riley, John Stezaker, Alison Wilding, seen alongside vintage furniture and fabrics.
Velorose is also (re)asserting its 'creative hub' status, and will be taking this opportunity to invite you to drop in and toast the arrival of Nicola Lee - Barbican property specialist sisters - and will be unveiling more collaborators very soon.
