When it comes to its relaunch, Helmut Lang is going all out and taking on multiple sides of the arts and culture spectrum. With the forward-thinking Shayne Oliver onboard, the legendary label has linked up with Ethan James Green to shoot its 2017 fall/winter campaign and announced the “Re-Edition” initiative to re-release coveted archival pieces. Now, after previously revealing plans for the endeavor last month, Helmet Lung has formally announced a multi-discipline venture known as ”HELMUT LANG SEEN BY: THE ARTIST SERIES.” As revealed earlier today, ”HELMUT LANG SEEN BY: THE ARTIST SERIES” is billed as a ”year-long program featuring 12 visual artists.” Curated by Editor-in-Residence Isabella Burley, this latest effort from Helmut Lang is motivated by the brand’s legacy of collaborations and “re-contextualizes cult artworks as limited-edition posters, T-shirts and special products.” Every month will yield three works from each of the artists involved with the effort; at present time, the series’ first collaboration is set to arrive in Octobero of this year. The roster of artists chosen for “SEEN BY: THE ARTIST SERIES” consists of individuals such as Leigh Ledare, Boris Mikhailov, Peter Hujar, Keizo Kitajima and others.
