The Art of Football Shirt
Exploring the relationship between football and popular culture with a curated selection of over 100 sartorially sound, obscure and vintage football shirts
Location: Camp and Furnace
Date: 15 June – 28 June
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.
The exhibition will be officially open from midday on Friday 15 June and will be followed by a Q&A with Neal Heard & Bido Lito! Editor Chris Torpey at 6pm before the Spain v Portugal game at 7pm.
