Instead of handing out descriptions Jonathan Simkhai had his moodboard for his presentation handed out. Black and white photocopies of old photos of The Specials, a ska band from 1970′s London. As someone who loved ska music back in high school, and loved photo copied ‘zines, this show might be a revitalizing treat or a cringe-worthy trip down memory lane. As I turned the corner, it turned out a revitalizing treat. The checker motif repurposed with multi-colored tribal patterns, color blocked bomber jackets, and mod-inspired clean-cut-but-edgy silhouettes. It was a mashup that only could be inspired by ska music which is probably one of the first mashup genres of alternative pop music. Well done.
