Print! Tearing It Up

Until 22 August 2018

Somerset House, London

Somerset House explores the power of print by celebrating the past and present of Britain’s thriving independent magazine scene. Print! Tearing It Up will be the first exhibition to trace the journey of independent voices in magazines and journals from their roots in the early 20th century to today’s contemporary titles. Contrary to the idea that print is dying, these freethinking publications reflect a wider independent culture, proving print is going from strength to strength in the digital era.

The exhibition chronicles the evolution of progressive print publications and celebrates the diverse subjects and social issues they tackle. From alternative views on lifestyle, leisure and architecture to addressing topical issues including diversity, gender, sexuality and media manipulation, the show champions the innovation and creativity of this growing industry. We’re delighted that Slightly Foxed is included in this exhibition, and we heartily recommend visiting Somerset House this summer.
