SHEET x KK Outlet, Issue 10MODERN LOVE
We are thrilled to bits to be curating SHEET issue 10. The theme is Modern Love.
SHEET is a free poster magazine created and distributed quarterly by Urban Outfitters Europe. Challenged with a way of presenting many works in varying styles SHEET is made up of single posters which allows each artists’ work to stand alone, free from the constraints of a narrative.

Thanks to today’s technology we can walk around all day with a world of potential lovers in our pocket. From sexting to sex robots, WLTM to DTF, hook ups, hang ups and oh so many unreturned text messages, it’s clear that our minds are more open than ever and so are our bedroom doors.
And in this world of instant gratification and rejection, how do you go about falling in love? You could argue that despite all our clever inventions, the path to becoming one half of that smug couple who finish each other’s sentences has never been harder.
“Never gonna fall for modern love” – David Bowie.
