REVIEW by MASS APPEAL: On Thursday night adidas Originals SoHo store in New York City celebrated a decade at its Wooster Street location and Mass Appeal was on hand for the festivities. No ordinary party the classic brand paid tribute to New York’s rich culture with an exhibition curated by DJ and man about town Ben Solomon and Nicolas Atkins. “HERE WE GO AGAIN: A Visual History of the Past 3 Decades of New York City” featured the work of legendary LES photographer and documentarian Clayton Patterson, visual artist turned rising music star Kilo Kish, Seven’s Clash photo Alexander Richter, style king Moredechai Rubenstein and Arab Parrot among others. The space filled quickly with NY luminaries and the young, cool crowd took in the sights on the walls and the sounds provided by DJ Stretch Armstrong. See pics of the event and watch video of Ben Solomon, Nicolas Atkins and Clay Patterson explain why is was important for them to rep NY with the exhibition.—MASS APPEAL, New York
