    Last week, on 31 January 2014, art director and all around visionary Matthew Williams payed a visit to SHOWstudio to be interviewed by our editor Lou Stoppard for our In Fashion series. 

    Over the live broadcast, Williams opened up about his impossibly exciting career, from growing up in central California and the great impact that had on his cultural understandings and interests, to his relationships, both working and personal, with fellow creatives such as Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Nick Knight. And, of course, Williams gave us the insider insight on his most recent venture #BEENTRILL#

    'For real change to happen it takes radical ideas. And that scares people,' he argued.

    Williams offers an extremely rare, candid and refreshingly authentic perspective on the increasingly entwined path of the music and fashion industries. We are pleased to present full footage from the interview for you to watch on-demand!

    William S. Burroughs Portraits by Kate Simon at SHOWstudio Shop

    SHOWstudio Shop will host a solo exhibition of portraits of William S. Burroughs by Kate Simon to celebrate the occasion of his centenary. The exhibition will mark the debut release of Simon’s Cibachrome Edition portfolio, which is comprised of 11 iconic shots of the literary master printed in the now extinct cibachrome medium. These rare photographs will be displayed alongside a selection of black and white limited edition prints. Taken over a 20 year period, Simon has amassed a critical body of work that is widely unseen and captures the many faces of one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.

    Merging the formality of high literature with the allure of the low brow detective novel, Burroughs unapologetically addressed controversial subjects of narcotic abuse, erotic sexuality, criminality and excess in his work. The legendary persona of the author has also garnered unbridled fascination. Purposefully weaving elements of his autobiography into his fiction, Burroughs obscured readings of his own character and rendered himself inextricable from his writing. He also appears in the literature of his contemporaries in a number of contradictory guises, most notably as Jack Kerouac’s Will Dennison and Old Bull Lee. At one moment, he is a grey, anonymous spook with the capability to cast a manipulative spell over his peers, and the next he is warm, mannerly, adored, even kind.

    While Simon’s portraits capture the familiar image of Burroughs with his glasses perched on his hollow cheeks, his suit, his trilby hat and often a gun in tow, they also reveal the many facets of the man. But to try and identify the secret of Burroughs’ persona would be as futile as seeking out a fixed narrative within his literature. Here, Simon’s candid portraiture embraces these various copies, simulations and projections of the writer in a show that reflects Burroughs’ own presentation of himself.

    The exhibition opens on 14 March and will run through until 9 May at our Motcomb Street gallery in London. Don't miss it!
