Photo Diary: The French Dispatch Exhibition at 180 Studios, London
Updated: Jan 6, 2022
Last fall, Londoners were treated with an exclusive exhibition of original props, costumes, sets, and artwork illuminating the inimitable aesthetic of Wes Anderson’s new film The French Dispatch launched in cinemas on October 22.
If you missed it or if you visited and you’d like to relive the dreamlike experience of the great director’s instantly recognisable aesthetic, I'm inviting you to sit back and enjoy this brief visual documentation of it.
Celebrating Wes Anderson’s charmingly award-winning idiosyncratic style, the exhibition is entirely dedicated to his new long-awaited movie The French Dispatch by whose all-star cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Benicio del Toro, and Bill Murray.
Upon entry, visitors were handed a souvenir copy of the limited edition “The French Dispatch magazine.” The exit was right through a vivid life-size recreation of the movie’s “Le Sans Blague” café serving hot coffee, classic French refreshments, and tasty pastries. All throughout October and November, the cafe hosted chess nights, live gigs, and even a jazz and wine tasting evening.
