What is fashionable and what does it convey about ourselves? How do we adorn ourselves? How do we use fashion to show who we are, who we think we are, or who we want to be?

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.

While some participating artists have already been discovered by well-established fashion brands, others continue to work from within their own communities. They are outspoken, challenging, critical or provocative, but always highly relevant in a time defined by fundamental power shifts in which access, diversity and identity are keywords.
