The Cultural Organization ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture (ATOPOS CVC) is organizing the exhibition entitled ARRRGH! Monsters and Signs in vogue at the Benaki Museum, from May 14 until July 31, 2011.

The report presents the first international extension of the phenomenon of strange, bizarre and monstrous characters in fashion and clothing. The characters are imaginary creations of contemporary artists, resulting from the mixing of the human form with zoomorphic, mythical and supernatural characteristics.

The exhibition presents works of Walter Van Beirendonck, Hideki Seo, Alexis Themistocleous, Gareth Pugh, Dr NOKI’s NHS, Issey Miyake, Cassette Playa, Bronwen Marshall, Charlie Le Mindu, Jean-Charles De Castelbajac, Bas Kosters, Maison Martin Margiela, Andrea Ayala Closa, Bernhard Willhelm, Mareunrol’s and Pyuupiru among others.
