MFA Photography 2009 Alumni Erik Madigan Heck Opens “Old Future” at Christophe Guye Galerie in Zurich

MFA Photography 2009 Alumni Erik Madigan Heck has just opened his exhibition “Old Future” at Christophe Guye Galerie in Zurich. You can read more on the exhibition here.

Nathalie Herschdorfer writes “Erik Madigan Heck’s visual language is quite amazing in that sense. In a relatively short career, he has developed a very personal way of looking at fashion. A glance at his book, Old Future – published this year by Thames & Hudson – reveals a clear and distinctive treatment of colours and patterns that form his signature. The series reproduced here was published in April 2017 in the New York Times Magazine. It was Heck’s own idea to produce a fashion portfolio on Comme des Garçons to accompany the launch of Rei Kawakubo’s recent exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in a magazine that would normally exclude fashion pages. Again, this is an example of Heck’s unique approach: to work with a non-fashion magazine and focus on Kawakubo’s work – a designer who strives to go beyond fashion and express ‘abstract images’ rather than simply design clothes.”
