Marking 21 years of the Teenage Cancer Trust show at The Royal Albert Hall in London, which missed a landmark anniversary last year due to the pandemic, the designer and art director Tom Hingston has curated an exhibition and charity auction featuring 21 screen-printed works celebrating the charity's ties to music. Fashion designers Matty Bovan and Liam Hodges join a star-studded roster which includes Nick Cave, Jason Evans and Thom Yorke, Björk and Nick Thornton Jones and Warren Du Preez, and Mark Mattock and Stormzy, spotlighting influential partnerships in music. Each print is a single, one-off edition.
'We are proud to have been able to realise this project, in spite of everything this year, with some truly exceptional talent and great friends of the studio. We hope you enjoy looking at the work and feel inspired to play a part in raising funds for this incredibly important organisation', Hingston said in a statement.
Hingston is the founder of the creative agency Hingston Studio, which was launched in 1997. Over the years, he has collaborated with musical greats including the Rolling Stones, Massive Attack and Grace Jones. Hingston Studio count Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, The Vampire's Wife and Serpentine Galleries as clients.
The exhibition, ONE OF A KIND, will be housed at London's Maddox Gallery, Westbourne Grove and opens 23-31 July 2021. An online auction of the works raises money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
