home: event [ exhibition ]
Head to The Geffrye Museum for this great insight to the room that is far from interior design and most likely very different to the rest if your designed and styled home, but quite possibly a design inspiration and full of powerful ideas and styling.
Running til June at The Geffrye Museum the Teenage Bedroom exhibition is a fun, must-see.
‘A rare glimpse into the often secret, out-of-bounds world of the teenage bedroom. Guest curator Carey Newson and photographer Kyna Gourley documented the bedrooms of 26 London teenagers revealing how identity, memory and friendship are expressed within these eclectic private spaces and highlighting the contradictions of a room that is both within the family home and a space apart.
Carey Newson is an ESRC-funded doctoral researcher from the Centre for Studies of Home – a partnership between the Geffrye and Queen Mary, University of London. The project is supported by the Centre for Public Engagement, Queen Mary, University of London.’
