Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The exhibition Adorned – The Fashionable Show presents intriguing and challenging fashion related photography projects created by a new generation of visual artists. They all work with fashion, but most of them are not straightforward fashion photographers. For them, fashion and style are primarily tools to construct or question identities, to empower people and to play with cultures, gender, race and ages.

Participating artists: Mohamad Abdouni (Lebanon), Arielle Bobb-Willis (United States), Giovanni Corabi & Roberto Ortu (Italy), Justin Dingwall (South Africa), Julia Falkner & Lorena Hydeman (Austria & United Kingdom), Casper Kofi (Netherlands), Alexandra Leese (China), Tyler Mitchell (United States), Hadar Pitchon (United States), Mateus Porto (United States), The Sartists (South Africa), Catherine Servel (United States), Suzie and Leo (France), Ambroise Tézenas & Frédéric Delangle (France).
