Children of Graceland by Hayley Louisa Brown
26/04/2018 - 6pm
Village is proud to announce our upcoming exhibition 'Children of Graceland' by Hayley Louisa Brown.
Photographer Hayley Louisa Brown is a creative force to watch. As editor-in-chief of BRICK, a biannual hip-hop culture publication launched in 2015, she set out to eschew all the usual clichés about the genre, such as the propensity for overtly masculine imagery seen in American titles.
Her latest project Children of Graceland, supported by Ace & Tate’s Creative Fund, took her to Elvis Presley’s hometown where she photographed young Elvis fans, as a way of exploring his contemporary legacy and the idea of Elvis as a legend, rather than the man himself.
The idea of photographing young Elvis fans came from a curiosity regarding the longevity of Elvis’s legacy. Who was replacing a fan-base that was, as morbid as it sounds, dying out?
The exhibition will run from 27th April til 22nd May.
Preview Thursday 26th May, 6pm - 9pm.
Drinks provided by The Brunswick.
