Revisit Revise exhibition explores cultural and social change, identity and fashion that has influenced the development of textile and fibre arts expression today. Two major installations focus on themes of identity in clothing, and, reuse of discarded, unwanted material which would otherwise become landfill.
The first focusses on the classic white formal shirt, a widely and readily familiar object with considerable historical cultural significance to diverse social groups.
Network members have taken the rigid collars and cuffs of the formal white shirt and altered their style and detailing to reflect on decorative elements of clothing both pre- and post- the advent of the classic white shirt.
The second installation examines re-use of waste materials in the form of two major sculptural pieces and clothing to be featured in our “Art to Wear” parade.
The opening and “Art to Wear” parade is on Saturday 17th August at 1pm.
