Fashion Fictions

Stephanie Rebick (Ed)

Vancouver Art Gallery, 2023


‘Fashion Fictions’ accompanies a major exhibition organized by Stephanie Rebick, which surveys experimental design practices that exist at the intersection of fashion and other modes of cultural production. International in scope, the exhibition explores the increasing influence of research-based, materially driven practices on the global fashion scene, while acknowledging the proliferation of creative practices that challenge the aesthetic, material, and technological conventions of fashion. Rebick, through the title of the exhibition, references artist and technologist, Julian Bleecker’s influential essay “Design Fiction” (2009) in which he argues that the most innovative, transformative work is produced in the spaces between fact and fiction.
