Hatfield, Daniela (2010) GSK Contemporary – Aware: Art Fashion Identity. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
The Royal Academy of Arts presented GSK Contemporary 2010, the third season of contemporary art at 6 Burlington Gardens. GSK Contemporary – Aware: Art Fashion Identity focused on how artists and a number of designers examine clothing as a mechanism to communicate and reveal elements of our identity. The exhibition contained work by over 30 international contemporary artists and designers, including some newly commissioned work, and occupied the main galleries of the Royal Academy’s 6 Burlington Gardens building.
As assistant curator, Daniela Hatfield assisted in the design and organisation of a series of Salon Conversations to accompany the event. Cake and conversation featured at these salons, where the audience joined practitioners from the realms of art, fashion, sociology, performance, journalism, and fashion image-making to explore themes provoked by ‘Aware’, and to discuss ways in which fashion and art are presented, consumed, understood, respected, or reviled.
