As a multi-sensory experience, the exhibition aims to take the magazine into a further dimension and allow the viewer to travel interactively through the world of i-D, starting with its first straight ups and moving on to newly commissioned works which focus on a new generation of talent who are transcending artistic boundaries and realising new standards in their respective creative fields. The exhibition is focused both on celebrating i-D’s retrospective past as well as setting the path for the magazine’s next exciting chapter, illustrating Jones’ belief that “[i-D’s] past is the foundation for our future”. The result will be an empowering and diverse collection of individual voices and expressions, but also a collective ideology and vision which will highlight key progressive moments in popular culture over the past quarter of a century. Over 100 past and current luminaries from all sides of the creative spectrum have been approached to contribute to this project. The list includes photographers, musicians, writers, artists, stylists and designers.
