FROM THE WAY OF WOMEN ARCHIVES: HOLLY SHACKLETON

Editor — London (UK)
[Originally posted on July 2009]

i-D Magazine

Holly Shackleton is younger than we thought: she’s been editor at i-D magazine for 4 years until now, but it felt like it was much more time. We can clearly remember her name printed on every single issue of the magazine in the last years, so we see her quite like a totem. But Holly really traced her own path, growing from secretary to deputy editor through hard work, dedication and unconditional love for her job. Passion is not a trend.

FROM THE WAY OF WOMEN ARCHIVES: FETTE

Curator / Gallery Owner — Berlin (Germany)
[Originally posted on May 2009]

Fette with Bas Louter piece

Born in the district of Montauban, France, Fette has brought along with her a unique perspective to how we experience art in the confines of a gallery space. An approach that surely differs from someone that comes from a larger metropolitan, like Paris or Lyon. Fette’s Gallery has succeeded in giving a level of intimacy by conceptualizing the use of ones dwelling in the idea of combining it with a gallery space. Originally conceived in Los Angeles’s Culver City area, Fette’s Gallery has then moved to Berlin, Germany, a change that will, with no doubt, be useful for an interesting note of adaptation not only for the gallery but for Fette herself. Let’s discover what Fette has to say about her time living in Los Angeles and how, at her eyes, exhibiting art still has room for creative growth.
