Awkward Beauty Goes to Canberra

The School of Art Gallery will host the exhibition Awkward Beauty during September to coincide with Fashionably Early.

After launching to much acclaim in October 2011, the exhibition Awkward Beauty will now travel to Canberra to be housed in The Australian National University, School of Art Gallery in September to coincide with the project Fashionably Early in the nations capital.

Awkward Beauty will be launched to coincide with a major national design and fashion event co- hosted by the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) Fashion Department at the Gallery Of Australian Design (GAD) previously the National Portrait Gallery. GAD explores and promotes Australian design through exhibitions, discourse and events and is host to international design exhibitions for Australian audiences. The exhibition will have static displays as well as fashion parades and interactive components, demonstrating the diverse strategies of innovation that are repositioning Australian Fashion Design.

Fashionably Early Designing Australian Fashion Futures aims to offer designers a non-commercial space to think.   It encourages diverse solutions, experimentation, risk taking and play. To encourage divergent thinking the exhibition presents fashion in three distinct forms: as an image, an artefact, and an experience. This exhibition looks beyond the fashion image and asks: On the global fashion rack, what will make the next generation of Australian fashion outstanding? Can it be authentic, sustainable, and valued?

In 2010-11 Australian Jewellery Artist Helen Britton, returned from Munich to Western Australia for a three-month residency at FORM's Midland Atelier. Working from the Atelier’s studios, situated in the heart of Midland’s century-old former railway workshops buildings, Britton explored Western Australia’s creative landscape: meeting people, travelling, working with local materials and devising new ideas and bodies of work.

Awkward Beauty is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Helen Britton, Perth garment designer Justine McKnight and Perth photographer Michelle Taylor. The exhibition takes the complex notion of ‘beauty’ and spins a multi-layered, multi-material narrative around this; a narrative which is imbedded within the vast physicality of a 17 hectare historic railway workshop site.

Awkward Beauty is the direct result of the dialogue between Britton, McKnight and Taylor.
