The ArtWear Collective looks to showcase LGBTQ and artists/designers of color that are pushing creative boundaries in innovative ways. Concept as well as process are important in blurring the lines between art and fashion, and are essential for the progression of new visual practice.
Our Mission Statement:
The ArtWear Collective will operate as a cooperative to aid minority artists in showcasing their work. This is in order to build representation, establish ownership of identity, and develop a sense of understanding between these individuals and surrounding communities. ArtWear believes representation is imperative in the future of art and fashion. Community outreach is the bridge to solidifying all facets of creative ideas.
Upcoming Event: Spring 2019 ArtWear Show
The ArtWear Collective will be hosting our debut wearable-art show this upcoming spring of 2019 in Chicago, IL featuring LGBTQ artists and designers of color. Venue TBA.
