19-Feb-2014 • Event

After it completes its run in Moscow, Russia, the 'Designing 007' exhibition will move to The Netherlands from 12th October 2014 to 8th February 2015.

Press Release
In October 2014 the Kunsthal Rotterdam proudly presents the exhibition Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style. From Dr. No in 1962, starring Sean Connery, to 2012's Skyfall with Daniel Craig, Agent 007 captured the world's imagination. The screen hero has not only headlined the most successful franchise in film history, he has made an indelible impact on the worlds of art, music, fashion, technology, travel, automotive design, and lifestyle.

The Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibition celebrates this world of innovation and action, style and sex appeal with an inside view of the world's favourite secret agent. More than 500 gadgets, costumes, iconic vehicles, storyboards, graphic designs and props, together with numerous film fragments, present an unequalled multimedia experience of the world of James Bond.

The exhibition has been formed with exclusive material from the archives of EON Productions on commission from the Barbican, London by guest curator Bronwyn Cosgrave, Oscar®-winning costume-designer Lindy Hemming, and designer Ab Rogers. The exhibition has been presented previously in London, Toronto, Shanghai and Melbourne and will feature as part of The UK-Russia Year of Culture in Moscow before arriving in Rotterdam.
