The Hoodie

Most of us own one. The hoodie is everywhere: from the street to the sidelines of every sports field, and from the catwalk to the office and the studio. For some of us, the hoodie is just a casual, comfortable thing to wear, but for others it comes with all kinds of unavoidable social and cultural baggage. You might even say that it’s the last political garment in Western fashion. In The Hoodie exhibition, the hoodie is central - as storyteller and bearer of a wide range of different meanings.
