Things to see: Disobedient Bodies

Disobedient Bodies Hepworth Wakefield gallery

Last week saw the opening of Disobedient Bodies at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery in West Yorkshire. It’s curated by Jonathan Anderson (of J.W.Anderson and Loewe fame) and looks at the parallels in how fashion and art treat the human figure.

It sounds incredible, with pieces from the Hepworth Wakefield collection alongside iconic fashion examples from the likes of Christian Dior and Comme des Garcons. If you want a clue to how Anderson manages to juggle his many responsibilities, I can make a suggestion. Obsession seems to be the common thread to all his pursuits and I think that’s what keeps him going.

I spoke to him about this and his personal art collection in an interview for Sothebys.com. You can read it here.
