Arsenal Football Club’s 125th year in existence has been marked by an exhibition in the iconic Saatchi Gallery, London. Brought together by Nike and curated by Arena Homme+ Magazine, the free exhibit marks the anniversary of London’s most successful football club and celebrates the swerve and style that embodies Arsenal’s history.
Photographic collective DoBeDo were commissioned to create the content for the exhibition, merging new and established British talent to create a wide variety of explorative images. Whilst the vibrancy of the aesthetic displays a dynamic quality to the show, it is the passion of football in the everyday lives of fans and players alike that truly brings this exhibition to life. With behind the scenes access to training facilities and the stadium, the collective, led by founder Tyrone Le Bon, captured both a distinctively Arsenal element, and a powerful narrative in each striking image.
With a short documentary created by Ridley Scott Associates [RSA] on show at the gallery also, there is a real tapestry of great stylized works to revel in. The passion of these individuals for both football and the club is apparent to see, whilst the fantastic level of insight into the club makes this 5 day exhibit a one off.
