This weekend, the Northern England-inspired Lou Stoppard and Adam Murray exhibition North will debut at Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery. Centered exclusively around the arts and culture of 1980s Northern England, North will showcase a rare Raf Simons piece from the acclaimed FW 2003 Control line, photography from Alasadair McLellan and Jamie Hawkesworth, work from Glen Luchford and Nick Knight, a project from Virgil Abloh and designer Ben Kelly and more. Each part of the North exhibit will take its inspirational cues from the most historically-significant aspects of the styles of Eighties Northern England.
