The ArtWear Collective aims to showcase people of color/LGBTQ+ artists and designers that focus on interdisciplinary practices. We aim to feature specifically artists that blur the lines between fashion and art; i.e. wearable art, non-wearable garments, garment-based performance, and other forms of avant-garde garment-making.
In Spring of 2019, we will be hosting and curating our first showcase/fashion show in Chicago and are looking for artists and designers whose work parallels these ideals. This is to be a very non-traditional fashion show and work submitted during the application process can range over a multitude of practices as long as garment and the body are key reference points.
The following is the link to application and the DEADLINE is JANUARY 15, 2019. The application is free.
