A ground-breaking new exhibition combining fashion, football and art - as told from the terraces of the stadiums. Art of the Terraces is the first major exhibition to tell the story of a movement that defined sports culture of the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

In a fusion of art, fashion and popular culture Art of the Terraces explores the work of a generation of contemporary artists and designers who have been influenced by this movement over the last 40 years. It celebrates a culture scene that has been overlooked by the mainstream art world, but which has created its own dynamic art forms and which is now credited with the mass popularisation of sportswear as leisurewear - a worldwide phenomenon.

Sole-Zine issue 01, 05 and 06 were exhibited as part of this pioneering exhibition. Sole-Zine is a poster-zine dedicated to documenting British Trainer Culture. Investigating the unique seekers and highlights this much-loved fashion area giving rise to the tribes and cohesive socio-groups who define and are defined by values and tensions around status, belonging, and the need for individuality: Obsession, Style, and Place.
