Art & Design: Noughtie Nightlife, London

Held at the Richmix Cinema, cafe and art venue close to London’s Brick Lane, Noughtie Nightlife focuses on the state of the London club scene throughout the noughties.

The new exhibition celebrates  when more was definitely more and partygoers at club nights such as Boombox, Ponystep, Circus, Foreign, Kash Point, Nag Nag Nag, or Anti Social wore fully painted and bejeweled faces, or at the very least, something metallic and heavily structured.  Curated by Antony Price, a former DJ, and London College of Fashion lecturer, the exhibition observes this phenomenon using the work of photographers and bloggers Mega Mega Mega, We Know What You Did Last Night, Billa Baldwin, Ellis Scott, and Daniel Lismore, among others who readily documented this scene for the social networking generation.

Noughtie Nightlife is free and runs until October, 2nd at Richmix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London.
