Hussein Chalayan’s New Solo Show

You know it’s the height of summer when the extent of Arts & Culture news is the season premiere of Jersey Shore (which, granted, made for some compelling television). Thankfully, fall is just around the corner, and with it a return to civilization and more substantial matters. One early sign: Hussein Chalayan’s solo exhibition at Lisson Gallery, London, opening September 8. No stranger to the white cube, Chalayan’s latest project is a multimedia installation that includes film, sound and sculpture. The project takes the usual brainy approach, exploring cultural identity and other meaningful things we’ll be able to grasp more fully when humidity levels return to normal. For now, it’s reason to fight summer atrophy.
