Fashion Show: Clothing, Art & Activism
Jul 29 – Nov 6, 2022
The Glucksman
Cork, Ireland

From explorations of the ways in which fashion lends itself to self-representation to investigations into the economic and ecological effects of ‘fast fashion,’ the exhibition reveals how clothing becomes a means of activism and protest.

Fashion Show is an exhibition of Irish and international artists that looks at clothing as subject matter, material, and advocacy. Presenting works such as Lucy and Jorge Orta’s wearable objects that enable communication and interaction between strangers, Sibyl Montague’s textile blankets made from recycled clothing, Wang Bing’s durational film set in a Chinese garment factory, and Gluklya’s installation of T-shirts protesting the election of Vladimir Putin, Fashion Show demonstrates how our choice of clothing serves to express more than our sense of style. The exhibition also features Malick Sidibé’s iconic photographic portraits of Malian youth culture.

This exhibition is part of BEAM UP, a Creative Europe funded project to encourage the participation of people who are visually impaired in the planning and experience of museum activities. The displays will include a range of tactile elements, navigation and audio resources available in the gallery and online on the website.

    How can speech practices that trouble official languages disrupt the established social order and open up other configurations? Do they have the potential to impact the way we look or act?

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication
    Void
    International

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
