The Great Depression in the 1930’s saw Hollywood enter its Golden Age, a period many still describe as the Imperial Era of cinema. On the eve of WWII in 1939 MGM created Gone with the Wind, still one of the most successful films of all time. The Wizard of Oz, released the same year, became one of the most famous moving pictures ever made and Judy Garland’s rendition of Over the Rainbow has been voted the greatest American movie song of all time by the American Film Institute. Extravagant colour and elaborate sets delighted millions; timeless in their invention and splendour while the music, choreography and elaborate costumes of this period all became instant classics, both on celluloid and stage.

So now, while the financial world alleges we are once again in the midst of a grave depression, could Art once more succeed and exceed beyond all limits, providing a platform where all channels of creativity might flourish, stimulate and inspire?

With this in mind, Lingering Whispers has been born. An exhibition comprising of 40 international artists hunting for alternative ways of expression during this crisis. Art and Fashion will merge into one, both stage and catwalk, conscious and subconscious combined where imagination will be celebrated and the pigeonholed eliminated. Contemporary artists, poets, performers, fashion designers and photographers will unite in sharing their unspoken vanities, intoxicating fantasies, illusions, longings, dreams and desires. Lingering Whispers is about experiencing, not inert viewing. Art as a stage rather than four blank gallery walls. A glamorous, exquisite alternative to darkness and gloom.

    Saw ‘The Lingering Whispers’ show yesterday, 6th May, and I was truly impressed!

    The crypt’s dark setting for the ‘ Whispers’ show that illuminated the semi-forgotten recesses of thoughts, desires and fantasies was perfect; as it is that in some mysterious moments we tend to discover our elusive and intimate world. The narrow tunnels of the crypt also created a feeling of intimacy between the viewing public by the close proximity of bodies, as well bringing the images closer to the eye.

    Thus, as well seeing the splendid artwork, the show was indeed an experience on many different of levels.

    I loved the photography, and the Queen’s face is a wonderful piece of graphic art. I guess it was her that ‘sold’ me the catalogue, as the image graced its cover.

    But there was a drawback: the exhibited material did not have printed credits with authors’ names.

    Also, I would have loved to see ricci/forte act but it was ‘booked up’. Oh?

    Fantastic, nonetheless!

    Thank you!
