1-2-3-4 Anton Corbijn Fotomuseum Den Haag


SMEL was proud to attend the opening of the exhibition from Anton Corbijn. We worked with great pleasure and fun together with Anton creating an exhibition which represents the music world and Anton's relationship with the artists in a special and original way. The evening at the museum was epic and full of surprises with also a special guest appearance of Nick Cave who performed 3 songs for Anton. Thanks for everything Anton!

Anton Corbijn teams up with Smel for design exhibition


To mark the sixtieth birthday of photographer Anton Corbijn (b. Strijen, 1955), the Gemeentemuseum and the Hague Museum of Photography are organising the most complete retrospective of his work to date. The museums will pay homage to this leading portrait photographer in a duo of exhibitions held in the two different locations. The show 1-2-3-4 at the Museum of Photography, will feature photographs of bands and musicians with whom Corbijn had or still has lasting associations and in which the relationship between the photographer and the music world is at centre stage. Smel was asked by Anton Corbijn to collaborate on designing the 1-2-3-4 exhibition. More news will follow soon...
