Peres Projects is presenting The Night has a Thousand Eyes by Cece Philips and Dalton Gata’s Portrait for Loneliness. It is Cece Philips’ first exhibition with Peres Projects at the Berlin gallery.  In The Night has a Thousand Eyes, her images describe a strange, darkening cosmopolis where space, gender roles, and racial dynamics are reinvented. A city of women sitting, leaning, and drinking in office and living spaces, with the depths of their emotional worlds hidden. As Philips reveals to us the activities of this strange blue metropolis, we discover a place that is uncomfortably close to us. She is inspired by Edward Hopper, while she looks at the history of modernity through a feminist lens. She transplants women, particularly women of color, into a masculinized metropolis, pointing to the exclusion of certain behaviors and identities from these spaces, as well as the persistent homogeneity that exists in the corporate sphere. Having grown up in London and worked in advertising, she understands more than many the persistent destructive dynamics that permeate these spaces. On the contrary berlin gallery shows Portraits by Dalton Gata, who uses bold and vivid colors. He imbues his canvases with an energy that draws from the vibrancy of Caribbean culture. The Portrait for Loneliness engages with the motif of the passport photograph – a restrictive genre of imagery that classifies and marginalizes people based on their nationality and presumed birthright. Through this picture, Gata considers the parallel realities of privilege and marginalization embedded in such forms of official identification.

The new Levi’s collection is an homage to the Denim Family from 1950. The label called Denim Family, features a range of denim jackets, trousers, shirts, and dresses with a sportswear-like interpretation of traditional denim styles. It was designed for a whole family, mom dad and kids. These traditional pieces have been reinterpreted, to new modern and gender-neutral looks. The Denim Family collection is inspired by contemporary sportswear and utility wear, but is clean and simply constructed with an
adventurous approach to silhouette. Bottoms are loose and wide legged while tops are soft-shouldered and drapey, giving the overall effect of an A-frame shape. The same denim fabric is used throughout the collection, and it features a rich, inky shade of indigo. The whole collection was all designed to be not only gender-neutral, but also to be mixed and matched, giving it a versatility in how each piece can be worn, as a stand-alone style or as part of a layered look. Every denim piece in Denim Family is made using a lightweight 2×1, grey weft selvedge construction. This helps give the new pieces it’s modern shape and silhouette.
