Red Bull Arts New York’s inaugural exhibition is a collaboration with Bjarne Melgaard and his ongoing project, The Casual Pleasure of Disappointment.
Produced along with creative director Babak Radboy, the exhibition features a range of the eponymous clothing line, violently embracing the happily self-destructive aspects of fashion and consumerism.
The Casual Pleasure of Disappointment will see Red Bull Arts New York transformed into a “multi-level psychopathological department store”, populated by several dozen mannequins in bespoke looks produced with stylist Avena Gallaghe. It’s a hybrid entanglement of art, streetwear and consumer culture, featuring collaborations with Roe Ethridge, Jason Nocito, Miguel Adrover, Heji Shin and more.
