Alphabet City Festival 2006: TRASH
The always cozy yet contentious relationship between art and fashion raises its well-coiffed head again! Delightful and socially charged, flamboyant and political, whimsical and severe, this version of the art vs. fashion discourse is played out by Canadian and international artists through the mediums of painting, photography, installation, couture and sculpture.

Nick Cave, Lydia K, Clemencia Labin, Kent Monkman, Matthew Vescovo, Viktor & Rolf

Opening Reception

Thursday October 5, 7 – 10 pm
