The Art Of The Football Shirt
FOOTBALL SHIRT EXHIBITION
Camp and Furnace / 14th June – 28th June 2018 / Free
Opening times: From one hour before kick-off on all World Cup match days.
The show will be housed within a dedicated pop-up gallery space at Baltic Triangle venue, Camp and Furnace, which will also be showing all games during this summer’s World Cup. The show will be open from one hour before kick-off on all match days, from 14th June to 28th June.
Curated by fashion historian Neal Heard, The Art Of The Football Shirt explores the relationship between football and popular culture. Showcasing a curated selection of over 100 sartorially sound, obscure and vintage football shirts, it will show how team kits of previous generations have gained iconic status and how they have crossed paths with the worlds of music, fashion and politics. In the exhibition, Heard shares his vast knowledge, passion and enthusiasm to tell a story that goes beyond the realms of the beautiful game.
