    Born Free.

    CONSCIOUS

    South Africa’s apartheid was a system of institutional racial segregation that was set in place in 1948, and lasted up until 1994, marked by the election of Nelson Mandela into office. It has been 25 years since apartheid was abolished, and the first generation that were born without strict apartheid as laws is coming to age. Ilvy Njiokiktjien calls this generation the Born Free generation in her photo project. As a journalist for South African, German and American newspapers for over ten years, Njiokiktjien has been able to research the situation in South Africa over time. Collecting photographs of young people, and documenting their experience, the project now includes an exhibition, a photobook, and a hour long documentary. While many young people of this Born Free generation are able to live where they want and love who they want, racism still lives on in the social consciousness, and in the minds of many South Africans.

    Gucci Styles.

    STYLISH

    Eclectic, colourful and rampant with animals – the new Gucci campaign gives us life. Harmony Korine is an American film director and screen writer best known for writing Kids. Harry Styles, the former star of British pop boy-band One Direction, features in this new Gucci campaign. Gucci is trying to reframe formal men’s wear, and they chose unlikely, however awesome characters to execute their plan. The campaigns images play with Harry as an ‘eccentric yet nonchalant’ character living in a classic, however crowded and slightly broken down, mansion. Despite the happening backdrops, Harry’s colourful ensembles easily pop out from the page. He rock a bandana, and pink lapels, as a rather regal swan curls around his neck. Piglets run amuck in an overgrown garden, and Harry eats grapes in a room of antique marble busts. This campaign celebrates its own ability to be over the top, and innovating a new vision for Gucci men’s wear.

    Haring at Tate.

    UNSEEN

    Keith Haring was an important visual artist of the New York arts scene in the 1980’s. He focused his work on activism and political messages, and drawing and painting techniques were simply and straightforward. Haring was a pioneer of attempting to forge a strong connection between art and the people, between high art and popular culture, by posting messages on the subway systems, on the streets, and children’s hospitals. As an openly gay artist battling AIDS, his work called attention to the mounting AIDS crisis, but also racism, homophobia, drug addiction, and environmental degradation. Before his death in 1990, he created The Keith Haring Foundation to help with research and support for AIDS. Next month, starting from the 14th to November of this year, the Tate Liverpool will exhibit a retrospective of his work – many of the pieces have never been seen in the UK.
