“Fashionality” is a newly coined term that refers to the visual culture and semiotics of dress and adornment. Combining the words “fashion,” “personality,” and “nationality,” it suggests the interplay between clothing, identity and culture. Reflecting wide geographic and cultural diversity, this exhibition focuses upon the ways in which the concerns, identities and aesthetics of those living in Canada are expressed, deconstructed and reconfigured through the idiom of dress.

This blog records exhibition-related information, as well as work and events related to artists appearing in the show.

Canadian Monument #2

Great short video documenting the installation of Janet Morton's Canadian Monument #2.  48 seconds of the biggest shirt you will ever see:


And here it is, after the installation, with one of the McMichael's lovely guards. 
And yes, the label does say Xtra Large.
