POPSTORE were approached by Ignition management, representing the 1990’s iconic band, Oasis to help open an exhibition and pop-up store at LondonNewcastle Project space in Shoreditch.The Oasis exhibition was to celebrate 20 years – to the day – since the release of their debut single Supersonic. Five rooms of photography, film and iconic Oasis memorabilia made up the exhibition. Curated by Lawrence Watson, seven photographer’s works from 1993-1997 were on the walls, with all prints for sale, along with a store selling Oasis Merchandise, inclusive of Oasis rolling-tins, 1993 demo cassette tapes, posters, t-shirts and bags. A life-size recreation of the album cover of ‘Definitely Maybe’ proved to be a major attraction, with visitors able to go in and take photos of themselves replicating the album cover. Guitars, lyric sheets, and iconic Oasis tour props were also on display. The exhibition also marked the recent announcement of re-releases of the 1994 debut – Definitely Maybe. Music was available for pre-order; special edition cd’s with rare demo-recordings, along with a Boxset which includes a 12”vinyl, photography book, and of course the special edition cd amongst others, and, to cement the 1990’s feeling, the 1993 demo cassette. The entire event proved to be an unprecedented success, giving fans the opportunity to reminisce and enjoy the Oasis era. *all images from NME online.
