Exhibition Essay

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.

Curator’s Note 

Ready to Wear is about the fabrics and clothes that weave their way through our lives from birth to death through the minds of a diverse group of artists. The works in Ready to Wear really cannot be understood with a quick glance, because in some case the connection is obvious and in others it requires more contemplation so the audience is forced to slow down. When curating this collection my goal was to create interesting exhibitions in which visitors want to spend a lot of time with each artwork. 

Congrats to all selected artists and thank you to all the artist who submitted work it was truly a delicate selection process. I’d also like to thank Arts to Hearts for giving me the opportunity to curate this show, it was my honor.
