The Selfridges Corner Shop: Universe
The latest pop-up to occupy the ever-changing Corner Shop in Selfridges Oxford Street, Universe is a wavy new exhibition exploring the work of Victor Vasarely, a groundbreaking French-Hungarian artist who was a key figure within the mid-twentieth century Op-art movement. A collaboration between the Vasarely Foundation, fashion house Paco Rabanne and Selfridges, the exhibition showcases Vasarely’s seriously wavy optical illusions and explores the artist’s enormous influence on both his contemporaries (like Paco Rabanne himself) and the tastemakers of today. Alongside checking out 55 seriously trippy op-artworks and sculptures — some of which are even available to purchase — you can also shop an exclusive collection of Vasarely-inspired products, as well as the Paco Rabanne Spring Summer 2022 collection, for which creative director Julien Dossena took inspiration from some of Vasarely’s geometric patterns.
