‘Apate is an exhibition of textile-based sculpture by seven emerging visual artists, masquerading as an avant-garde fashion label.’
The exhibition launched last Friday and will run at Moana Project Space till September 26. The project is supported by the Department of Culture and Arts through the Young People and the Arts Program; it aims to draw distinctions between art and fashion and questions the commercialisation of art due in part to the commodity driven culture of the fashion industry.
The exhibition showcases a range of limited edition garments and artworks. Some of which will take part in the WA Designer Installation runway show as part of the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.
