Mach Schau in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory is proud to present an exhibition of never before seen photographs of the legendary Steve McQueen.
‘Live for Myself. Answer to Nobody.’ showcases Feinstein’s images alongside contemporary artists’ own work, contextualizing the collaboration, dealing with the overarching theme of the ‘Outsider’ and rebel culture still present in today.
These new works relating to the myth and legend of this icon have been commissioned with artists taking up their own themes on the legend of Steve McQueen, to create their own stories and explanations of the man. McQueen had an appeal that crossed cultures and eras, ‘noble‘ and ‚rebellious‘, seemingly conflicting attributes in one person.
In addition to this original collection is an exploration of the legacy of biker culture in contemporary society where the same rebel spirit lives on.
The show at The Custom Factory Project Space will take place on the 3rd Floor NCP, 32 Brewer Street, Soho, London, W1F 0ST
Show runs 28th November till 14th Jan 2014.
