“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.

Who's in Canadian Art?

We are!  Check out the Summer edition of Canadian Art Magazine, pages 56 - 57, for a short piece about the show, and a very fun photo of the Fashionality curator (yours truly), with the amazing Cathy Daley and Miss Canadiana. Warning: contains supermodels.
