Serpentine Sackler Gallery
3 October 2018 – January 2019
Run between Edinburgh and Brussels, Atelier E.B is the fashion label under which designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie collaborate. By combining the strategies of applied and fine arts, they explore the commercial realities of production and distribution within the act of making, often through collaboration with others. Comprising fashion collections, commissioned displays and interiors, textiles, furniture, events and publishing Atelier E.B’s work is often presented within the context of deeply researched exhibitions. At the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Atelier E.B will examine the intersecting relationships between art, design, commerce and display through the figure of the mannequin. The exhibition will include a presentation of historic material, a series of newly commissioned mannequins by contemporary artists, and Atelier E.B’s new clothing collection.
