Opening Celebration and Live Performances: 1914 Now | Fashion & Performance
The creative territory between fashion, architecture and performance is explored in two new exhibitions at RMIT Design Hub.
Fashion & Performance: Materiality, Meaning, Media highlights a community of contemporary practitioners who sit between the disciplines of experimental fashion, clothing and performance. In a climate of interdisciplinary and collaborative thinking, Fashion & Performance addresses an evolving and hybrid area of practice that unpicks the multiple messages in worn and performed clothing and fashion.
1914 Now: Four Perspectives on Fashion Curation presents four immersive films curated by four of the world’s leading fashion luminaries: Judith Clark, Amy de la Haye, Walter Van Beirendonck and Kaat Debo. Architect Rem Koolhaas invited the national pavilions in the Giardini of the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale to respond to the brief Absorbing Modernity: 1914 - 2014. 1914 Now leaps from this brief and comprises a series of responses from the curators who each have a distinctive approach towards their discipline.
Professor Calum Drummond, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research & Innovation and Vice-President RMIT University and Professor Robyn Healy, School of Fashion & Textiles will launch the exhibitions.
Live performances by Adele Varcoe and Margret Wibmer.
