LAUNCH OF MODE AND MODE SIX, ART FOR ALL
at ReadingRoom, Sunday 16 December, from 3–5 pm, to celebrate the launch of the sixth issue of Mode and Mode, Art for All...
Mode and Mode is a periodical that addresses printed matter in fashion practice. Each issue explores experimental publishing in fashion with an interview around a print-based project at the margins—one that has critical effects to fashion as a discourse—with the aim to level alternative, lesser-known fashion practices with contemporary fashion discourse. In doing so, Mode and Mode reflects on the role of print and acts of publishing, and their potency to disrupt, or propel, fashion narratives.
Mode and Mode six, Art for All, looks at the longstanding artists’ publication point d ’ironie featuring an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist— point d ’ironie co-founder with artist Christian Boltanski and agnès b.—and a foldout poster created in collaboration with Kate Meakin and Jessie Kiely.
The launch event is hosted by ReadingRoom, and supported by World Food Books, agnès b, and managing editor of point d ’ironie, William Massey.
Refreshments have generously been provided by Melbourne Gin Company and StrangeLove.
