HUNGER’s MVP of the week

Welcome to HUNGER’s Most Valuable Player, the place to find the best things to buy, watch, do or listen to each week. Forget about the hype, we want to separate what’s hot, what’s not, and what needs to be on your radar…

As the summer weather starts to finally show itself, let Hunger run you through some of the hottest drops and events of the week.

Firstly, we’ve got iconic workwear brand Dickies and their new Dickies x New York Sunshine ‘Sun Dyed In Texas’ fashion collection/art installation. It marks the first time Dickies have collaborated with the art collective. 

The collaboration consists of two portions, the first an award-winning installation in the Marfa Desert, Texas, wrapped in Dickies signature twill fabric, illuminating the night sky and creating a mirage-like glow. From this, the weathered/sun-dyed material was pulled from the installations and upcycled to produce the ‘Sun-Dyed in Texas’ capsule collection. consisting of truly unique pants, vests and jackets. Each piece is labelled and numbered to showcase its rarity, as no two pieces are the same. 

As always, there can only be one winner and this week it’s an exhibition you won’t want to miss. THE UNSEEN is curated by RANKIN CREATIVE and is taking place at the Quantus gallery in Shoreditch. The exhibition is a community-first project re-platforming those who have been unfairly censored online. The discourse around online censorship is at an all-time high and artists on social media platforms are some of those most affected by unfair targeting. 

Bringing together hundreds of experiences and images of unfairly censored work and people, this exhibition of the project gives those who have been de-platformed the attention they deserve. With exclusive portraits of 13 of the UNSEEN shot by Rankin himself and an interactive experience from MEDIA MONKS, this exhibition aims to start the conversation about equitable censorship. 

THE UNSEEN is running up until Friday 24th June at Quantus gallery. Tickets are available for free here.
