Now at Foam in Amsterdam until March 11th 2020
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 presents intriguing and challenging fashion related photography projects created by a new generation of visual artists.
For them, fashion and style are tools to construct or question identities, to empower people, and to play with cultures, gender, age and races. While some participating artists have already been discovering by well-established fashion brands, others continue to work from within their communities. They are outspoken, challenging, critical or provocative but alway highly relevant in a time defined by fundamental power shifts in which access, diversity and identity are keywords.
