Big thank you to everybody who came out on Wednesday night for our official launch party to celebrate the opening of the new store. The drink was flowing, the food was perfection from the Commune crew and the music was vibing in-store from special guest James Lavelle and the Goodhood DJ’s, and We Are Shining, Seb Chew & Blackfoot Phoenix brought the heat at the after party. We hope you’re heads weren’t as bad ours in the morning. Keep your eyes peeled for many more exciting events (found here) in the coming weeks as we make ourselves at home in the new store. The full collection of photos will be available next week via our Facebook page so stay tuned.
September week two brings some quality visuals and reading; William Strobeck has a new short film called ‘Joyride’ and it’s brilliant, Huck Magazine sit down for a chat with Joe Lauder of Satta, and German design studio Hort celebrate their 20th birthday with a brand new exhibition at KK Outlet in Hoxton.
Some excellent video based content this week; Cav Empt present their Fall ’14 video lookbook and it is a sight to behold, Fact Magazine round up the twenty best rave videos on YouTube as part of rave week, which is an incredibly entertaining way to spend a couple of hours, and the brilliant documentary, Sign Painters, is showing in London again next week at Somerset House, with Mike Meyer in attendance giving demonstrations and talking about his beloved craft. ‘Til next time.
With our roots lying in subcultures, one of which being skateboarding, we pay homage to a culture that spawned a generation of creatives by asking leading artists and designers to contribute to the creation of a series of skateboards. These skateboards will be exhibited in our new space on Curtain Road in conjunction with the London Design Festival from 13th – 21st September.
To celebrate the exhibition we are inviting our customers to come down for a late-night event on Wednesday 17th September from 7pm. The evening will include the opportunity to view the monochromatic exhibition featuring exclusive work from not only some of our favourite designers and makers but also some of the world’s most highly regarded artists, including Jake & Dinos Chapman, Will Sweeney, James Jarvis, Ed Davis, Russell Maurice, Daniel Sparkes, Ged Wells, Jiro Bevis, French, Ornamental Conifer & Trevor Jackson. Each piece has been created specifically for Goodhood and this exhibition. It is a truly extraordinary, culturally aware & innovative series.
We invite you to not only view the series, but you also have the rare opportunity to own a worldwide exclusive, unique piece of art. Not only would you be expanding your art collection but you’ll also be doing a good deed, as all proceeds will be donated to the Long Live South Bank skate charity. So come on down to the store and join us for a unique auction, exhibition and to support a good cause.
