A group show curated by Nancy Victor
The t-shirt is an item that is easily accessible to the consumer and thought provoking to the designer. Aesthetic and function make for considerable research and interactive designs. Pop culture has had a huge effect on clothing and objects. After arising in the 1940's, popular culture began to intersect with media culture and innovations, image culture, and consumer culture due to social and cultural changes. Advertising, comic, graphic novels, designers and artists approach a slightly thematic distinction between art and life creating homage to the different elements of popular culture.
This exhibition portrays strong elements of originality with designs varying from the fields of illustration, typography, graphic design and street art. The show aims to support the individual designer by developing a two week exhibition combining pure design along the sleeve of creativity, pushing the boundaries of Nancy Victor as a contemporary art hub maintaining its ethos towards creative activity.
Contributing artists include: Drew Barr, Billy Clark, Cris Convery, Tony Lee, Radim Malinic and Louis Masai. Each designed t-shirt will be for sale and comprises from a small edition. The design by Louis Masai is a hand painted original.
