Dress Code

What impact does fashion have on identity, gender and culture and are there ethical issues surrounding its production? Gerwyn Davies, Hannah Gartside, Lisa Hilli, Grace Lillian Lee and Emily McGuire investigate diverse cultural approaches to making, buying and wearing across the Asia Pacific region. The exhibition showcases playful photography by Davies, a large-scale kinetic sculpture by Gartside, an installation by Hilli and wearable artworks created by Lee, along with a series of hand-stitched pieces from McGuire.
