In this exhibition each of the artists hones in on a personal aspect of the process in fashion consumption. The works are personal narratives of the complicity that each artists has been exposed to and just as the mediums differ, so too are the acute works that unpack this theme.
Although it is part of Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, funds are needed to pay for venue, printing and catering. The audience is far broader for the artists due to the festival’s platform. It will be exhibited from 13 – 19th Mar 2017 at Space at Collins.
This exhibition is imperative as despite the rise of fashion exhibitions in art institutions, very few go beyond the creations of couturiers. This exhibition highlights the fact that audience engagement of fashion exhibitions stems from their own complicity in fashion consumption. All of the artists bring their own personal narrative and want to share with an alternative audience who may not normally hear their voice through their works.
Donations will be used primarily to pay for venue hire and the costs of staging such an event with registration, insurance, security and catering. In addition, there are costs involved with the printing of catalogues and flyers. Most of the other costs have been absorbed by the curator and artists and this is the reason we implore you to generously donate to the cause and receive a tax deduction.
