Pam Hogg

05.12.09 - 20.12.09

For the culmination of the 2009 exhibition programme, +44 141 Gallery presents an exhibition by internationally acclaimed fashion designer Pam Hogg, featuring archival video footage, recently produced music videos and garments and images from her A/W 09 and S/S 10 ‘Goddess at War’ collections. Over the past 25 years, Pam Hogg’s varied and dynamic career has seen her dominate the fashion world with a series of daring collections, support bands such as ‘The Pogues’, Siouxsie Sioux, and Debbie Harry and designed garments for the likes of Kylie Monigue.

Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art and Royal College of Art in the early eighties, Hogg has moved freely between working within the fashion and music industries, repeatedly bringing her characteristic aesthetic and ‘punk’ influences to both fields. After a series of catwalk shows with ‘Hyper Hyper’ collective in the mid eighties, and an i-D Magazine cover, she launched her own Carnaby Street based store. Over the course of the next six seasons she continued to take on the fashion world, being described as ‘one of the most original, inventive, creative designers in Britain’ and in 1990 presented the first ever fashion exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. 

Since the late nineties she has produced a series of fashion-cum-music videos casting a host of friends including Siouxsie Sioux and Alison Mosshart from the Kills to appear alongside her in the new twin collections, 'Opal Eyes' and 'Electricman'. The first of these ‘Fashion Films’ made between 1999 and 2001, “Accelerator” starring Anita Pallenberg, Bobby Gillespie and Patti Palladin, will also be presented in the exhibition. 

In 2009 Pam returned her attention to the catwalk, producing two brand new collections to much fanfare. Her exhibition at +44 141 Gallery will present a range of recent works demonstrating the ongoing importance of a much-celebrated artist.
