What we wear can mark a time and place, tell the world who we are or maybe who we want to be. Clothes & dressing up are not just essential for warmth and modesty – they can be for so much more. They can be a source of joy or misery, a memory, a celebration, a disguise, a means of self- expression or a way of proclaiming allegiance to the tribe. They can attract judgement, compliments and condemnation. They can gild the lily or disguise the unmentionable. They can proclaim your age, your era, your politics or your rebellion. They can be serviceable, impractical, ugly or beautiful. They can also tell stories.
With this curated group exhibition “Ready to wear” we are excited to document, investigate and learn about several expressions of culture, time, experiences and so much more via the medium of visual arts.
About Guest Curator: Celine Gabrielle
As a child of the 80’s/90’s not only was Celine influenced by the bold, in-your-face neon colours, big shoulder pads and modern technology take-over, she was also greatly influenced by both her baby boomer parents and grandparents. Her vibrant works are very inspired by pop culture, fashion, style, design and architecture across many generations as far back as the 1920’s Art Deco and flapper girls right through to the 2000’s mega stars such as Lady Gaga and the haute couture trends of today. As a self-taught artist, Celine is influenced by the well-known artists she had access to—many who are popularized in pop culture like Tamara de Lempicka, Rene Magritte, Andy Warhol, and Pablo Picasso. Her work takes from the artist’s obsession with fashion. More specifically, fashion’s role as a form of how we tell the world who we are, or maybe who we aspire to be. In the artist’s own words, “Sometimes it speaks our culture and can connect us to a place or time in history. Sometimes it blurs the lines of all that. It always tells a story.”
