The creative territory between fashion, architecture and performance was explored in two exhibitions at RMIT Design Hub Gallery.
Fashion & Performance highlighted a community of contemporary practitioners who sit between the disciplines of experimental fashion, clothing and performance. The exhibition included time-based media, garments, installations and a series of live performances. In a climate of interdisciplinary and collaborative thinking, Fashion & Performance addressed an evolving and hybrid area of practice that unpicks the multiple messages in worn and performed clothing and fashion.
The exhibition brought together an extraordinary selection of contemporary moving image based works from artists and designers including Hussein Chalayan, B O U D I CC A, Bart Hess, Lucy Orta, Maria Blaisse and Marie Schuller.
