Laundry Service Celebrates Women And Minority Artists With Sister Arts Movement
The platform launches this week.
Building on the self-love zine Georgina Johnson created with photographer Tyler Mitchell earlier in the year, the Laundry Service designer is launching a new initiative to highlight and support the experiences of women and minority artists. The Laundry Arts program – a “sister movement” to her main label – launches this week with its first exhibition, “Memories,” at Protein Studios in East London.
Coming from Johnson's perspective as a black woman, the program is about the power of stereotype-free collective action: “it's all about creating a network of kin,” she told Dazed. The Laundry Arts makes space for a new band of rising stars: showcasing the work of artists with less exposure or at the beginning stages of their careers.
The Laundry Arts talks and workshops run from 4-9 August at London’s Protein Studios – get your tickets here.
