“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.

Jacques Payette at the Laurentides

Congratulations to Jacques Payette for another major retrospective of his work: this time at the Musee d'Art Contemporain des Laurentides.  No need to say that it will be a beautiful show. 


Here's one of Jacques' gorgeous works in Fashionality, entitled Dans des décors inachevés. Fustian and encaustic on canvas, 2003. Collection of the artist, Montreal.
