Apparatus 22

26 Oct 2011, 6pm
Wed Night Open Forum
Mack Lecture Theatre, The Glasgow School of Art
Free admission

As part of the GSA's Wednesday Night Open Forum series comes a night of discussion on the work of Apparatus 22, a loose group of artists and researchers interested in the 'critical potential of clothing and fashion' and exploring long-term concerns about fashion's disposability. 

Apparatus 22 was initiated in spring 2011 after a reconfiguration process of the cutting-edge fashion label Rozalb de Mura (2006 – early 2011). Olah Gyarfas is a permanent guest of the collective. The group explore the crossovers between art, design and fashion, focusing on themes such as the critical potential of clothing and fashion, the long-term concerns about fashion's disposability, mixing fiction with reality, and blurring the lines between genders. Apparatus 22 often stage work as performances or art installations.
