The Modern Institute presents a historical show by British artist Duggie Fields.
Fields’ world combines elements from disparate cultural and historical vocabularies, drawing on imagery from classical and popular culture to inform his own cohesive signature style.
Fields studied at the Chelsea School of Art in London during the 1960s, and his body of work includes painting, video, sound and digital imagery. With a life that is very much intertwined with his creative output, Fields inspired Rei Kawakubo’s designs for Comme des Garçons’ Autumn/Winter 2007 collection, he featured in a Shiseido Corporation advertising campaign and was a cultural icon in Japan during the 1980s.
Fields’ exhibition will recreate the artist’s personal environment, collaging seminal works with new ones alongside video and sound pieces – a context that explores Fields’ position as an artist and cultural phenomenon
