Included in the Lloyd Johnson show are photographs of performers wearing Johnson’s apparel – above is a 1979 shot of Iggy Pop in one of the label’s jackets paired with a Johnson’s Bluebeat hat (if memory serves, Glen Matlock, who was working with Pop at the time on his album New Values, told me that Iggy half-inched it from him).
The show title has been installed, the vitrines finalised and the Johnson & Johnson print jackets and shirts matched. In a tip of the hat to my Process show at the same gallery, I selected for installation on the ramp wall some of the sleeve portfolios Lloyd and Jill were using for storage at home to showcase artwork, print, photographic and production materials from the 80s and 90s.
Lloyd Johnson: The Modern Outfitter opens next Tuesday, January 24, at Chelsea Space, John Islip Street, London SW1P 4JU. Full details here.
