To celebrate the launch of this season’s cool collaborations, Uniqlo present two weekends of creative art and music events in a unique gallery space dedicated to the eponymous Uniqlo t-shirt: UT POP-UP! LON
Art weekend runs from Thursday 18 to Saturday 20 April and shaped around the legendary artists Keith Haring and Jean Michel-Basquiat.
Apply for tickets now and you could be at the exclusive launch party featuring performances from Gabriel Bruce, Age Of Consent, Bullion, Kutmah and GETME! On Friday see a screening of the documentary on the life of Keith Haring and Saturday brings the chance to train as an artist at the ARTSHOP session with influential artists and creative leaders.
Music weekend takes its turn from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 April with another exclusive talent-packed party with performances from Swim Deep, Wolf Alice, Fred MacPherson, Jen Long, and Noisey. Friday is full of a live recording session with Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs and Saturday praises vinyl with a pop-up record fair to round things off.
A Uniqlo pop-up shop will be open throughout showcasing the UT contents for SS13 of Rhythmic Textile, MTV, and the UTGP competition category of t-shirt designs inspired by Madonna, David Bowie, AC/DC, Kiss, Sex Pistols and The Who.
Customers and fans can apply for exclusive limited passes to the private events taking place in the UT POP-UP! LON via Uniqlo.com/uk/ut.
To add to the fun, Uniqlo have launched UT CAMERA, a new smartphone video app that turns two second personal looped video portraits into animation. You can download the UT CAMERA app from the app store to your smartphone (iPhone and Android) and create a video. If you’re wearing a UT, upload the video to the official UT website ut.uniqlo.com, if not, get it on Facebook and Twitter. Look out for the UT CAMERA booth at UT POP-UP! LON and you could win prizes for your entries throughout the opening. Add #UT_LDN and #UT_CAMERA to enter.
UT POP-UP! LON will open to the public from Friday 19 April to Saturday 27 April located at The Hoxton Gallery at the Arch on Kingsland road. The shop will be open daily 12noon to 6pm.
