Fashion Interactions

Fashion Interactions is a multidisciplinary exhibition that explores fashion culture by means of contemporary art, design and media. The exhibited works comment on the unsustainability of the fashion industry, analyze the relationship of fashion and corporeality, and investigate how people use clothes as tools for building their identities.

Curated by Annamari Vänskä, a post-doctoral research fellow at the Centre for Fashion Studies at the University of Stockholm and Hazel Clark, Research Chair in Fashion at Parsons, the exhibition features work by Federico Cabrera, Heidi Lunabba, Jasmin Mishima, Anna Mustonen, Nutty Tarts, Timo Rissanen (Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability at Parsons), Salla Salin, Heidi Soidinsalo, Saara Töyrylä and Timo Wright.

Gallery open late on Thursdays until 8 p.m.
