When Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren began designing womenswear in 1992, it was with the intention of crafting wearable art. Self-professed outsiders of the fashion world, the duo have consistently and meticulously blurred the lines between art and fashion, with dream-like silhouettes made from unexpected textiles and accessories showcasing their sense of humour and rebellion – from the doona dress of AW 05 to pieces resembling picture frames for Couture AW 16. In collaboration with the National Gallery of Victoria, and to coincide with the label’s 25th anniversary, the pair will showcase a collection of creations spanning their colourful career for Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists. Here you’ll find 40 pieces from the archives as well as a video gallery of Viktor & Rolf runways. The exhibition runs from October 21, 2016, to February 26, 2017.
To celebrate the launch of Tiffany & Co.’s new Sydney flagship space and its ongoing commitment to the Australian artistic landscape, three artists take us behind the scenes of their creative process in the lead up to their own in-store installations.
Make it a date. From an afternoon at the AGNSW to vintage shopping on King Street, Ilkin Kurt shares postcards from a dreamy weekend in Sydney.
Listen to your instincts; artist Clare Plueckhahn will show you how. In her latest exhibition, Running with Wolves, Plueckhahn explores the trope of the wild woman, seeking to rekindle the marriage between the feminine and natural realms on beautiful medium format film.
