An Exhibition Featuring:

Curated by Pa/Do Curatorial

In response to the role of fashion in the rise of society’s consumption and therefore as one of the many industries contributing to an uncertain future on our unstable planet in the age of the Anthropocene, the exhibition aimed to highlight threads of fashion consumer culture.

Worn workshop’s contribution to the exhibition, ‘Stories From the Worn Archive’, was an installation of clothing and storytelling curated by Worn Workshop from contributions to the Worn Archive: an ongoing collection of stories about people’s relationships with their clothes.

Through this first physical exhibition of the Worn Archive, the installation brought together the material and biographical experience of clothing to showcase how the ordinary garments within all of our wardrobes can become repositories for extraordinary personal stories with universal resonance.
