Not too long ago, our fabulous curator Nella took a trip down to Latrobe Regional Gallery to present a floor talk for How You Make It, a travelling exhibition jointly organised by Craft Victoria and NETS Victoria.
This is HYMI's third of seven stops and the exhibition will be on display until to 16 November. After that, HYMI will be packed up and transported to sunny WA where it will be shown at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 3 December to to 25 January. For the full itinerary, click here.
The exhibition features the work of Simon Cooper, Paula Dunlop, Ess. Laboratory (Hoshika Oshimi and Tatsuyoshi Kawabata), FORMALLYKNOWNAS (Toby Whittington), Anthea Van Kopplen, MATERIALBYPRODUCT (Susan Dimasi and Chantal McDonald), Project (Kara Baker and Shelley Lasica) and S!X (Denise Sprynskyj and Peter Boyd).
Curated by former CVHQ curator Kate Rhodes, HYMI explores artisanal fashion design practices that draw on traditional tailoring techniques to form contemporary collections.
