Atelier E.B: Passer-by is edited Beca Lipscombe & Lucy McKenzie and examines an essential facet of the fashion industry: the world of mannequins and retail display. Since the Surrealists took them up in the early twentieth century, mannequin have been an enduring motif within fine art. Lipscombe and McKenzie un-pack the disciplines of window dressing, look to radical thinkers and makers who dissolved the dividing line between fine art and commercial display, and piece together a compelling narrative that encompasses ethnography, statuary, dolls, the world fairs and our digital future.

This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition Passer-by, by Atelier E.B, at the Serpentine Galleries, London 3 October 2018–6 January 2019; Lafayette Anticipations-Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette, Paris, 21 February–28 April 2019; Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow 31 January–10 May 2020.
