WB Games UK has teamed up with Moniker Projects to invite twenty of the most exciting contemporary artists and media celebrities to produce the UK edition of Batman: Arkham Knight ‘Cape and Cowl’ Exhibition.
The artworks stand within dimly lit Victorian railway arches, casting a procession of silhouetted Batman shadows onto the bare-brick walls. The occasional rumble of overhead trains resonate over the ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ sound track, which together with the backdrop of the ‘Holding Cells’ set captures the atmospheric Gotham City aesthetic.
Mondays preview was attended by artists, celebrities and press. Guests experienced the twenty diverse approaches to re-designing the iconic Batman ‘Cape and Cowl’ within a Gotham City immersive setting.
The exhibition is now open to the public and continues until Sunday 28th June and features the creations of artists’ Nancy Fouts, Lauren Baker, Hayden Kays, Inkie, Pam Glew, INSA, The Connor Brothers, Zeus, Matt Small, Jon Burgerman, CASE, CRASH, Cyclops, Kid Acne, Logan Hicks and Pure Evil and media celebrities Jonathan Ross, Noel Clarke, Eliza Doolittle and Jodie Kidd.
Curated & produced by Moniker Projects Frankie Shea & Lindsay Edmunds, the exhibition is a rare opportunity to see these works on display together and to witness the exceptionally inspired approaches to what is a comic book, film and video game phenomenon.
