20 Years of Dazed & Confused
4 Nov – 29 Jan 2012, Somerset House, Terrace Rooms
A.Bliss worked closely with the Dazed team to deliver the high standard of production expected of such a well established and respected magazine. We mounted on various substrates including Aluminium and Foamex to achieve a clean, modern finish. Artists featured included Terry Richardson, Sam Taylor Wood, Gareth Pugh and Rankin.
“Dazed & Confused has been a go-to reference for style and culture since its explosive launch in London in 1991 by Jefferson Hack and renowned photographer Rankin. Quickly developing into a notoriously creative platform for new artists, musicians, designers, and filmmakers, and being widely known for its irreverent attitude, Dazed & Confused represented a new wave in the British press, bringing together figures from an assortment of fields and eras to produce extraordinary interviews and original artwork exclusively for the magazine.
Curated by Jefferson Hack and Emma Reeves in collaboration with Somerset House, this multi-layered exhibition immortalises the magazine’s most infamous visual stories, featuring legendary photo shoots, iconic covers, controversial editorial content and artwork from influential photographers, designers, and artists.”
