Wes Anderson enthusiasts, brace yourselves! This winter, an ‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ exhibition is set to grace London, running from December 8, 2023, to February 17, 2024. Boasting over 200 captivating photos of structures and landscapes worldwide that exude the unmistakable charm of a Wes Anderson film, this exhibit is a must-see for fans.
Originating as a personal project on Instagram by the dynamic Brooklyn-based duo Wally and Amanda, the ‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ concept has transcended social media to become a cultural phenomenon. The husband-and-wife team has successfully captured images reminiscent of Anderson’s directorial shots. Their initiative has evolved into a book, various pop-ups, and now, an immersive exhibition in the heart of London.
The showcase promises a journey through seven meticulously curated themed rooms, each encapsulating a facet of Wes Anderson’s unique aesthetic. From ‘Classic Facades’ to ‘Transport,’ ‘Maritime’ to ‘Hotels/Motels,’ the exhibition explores different elements that define Anderson’s style – be it Art Nouveau exteriors, pastel color palettes, vintage modes of transportation, or the pervasive symmetry that characterizes his cinematography.
An intriguing feature of the exhibition is ‘The London Room,’ the penultimate space, which focuses on Accidentally Wes Anderson photos captured in the city. Visitors are encouraged to actively participate by submitting their own photographs, with a chance to see their work featured within the exhibit.
