Seventh Skin

18 June - 2 August 2014

Tues-Sat, 10am- 5pm

Hatch Contemporary Arts Space

Celebratory Event: Thursday 26 June, 6-8pm

Seventh Skin features over 20 artists from across Australia, presenting works from the Banyule Art Collection and beyond around the them of disguise and adornment. The selected artists explore the role of theatre and costume in contemporary life in fascinating ways. Through props, make-up, costume and fashion, universal themes are explored such as identity, gender and cultural heritage.. 

Feeling ‘comfortable in one’s own skin’ is an expression that has multiple meanings in today’s age. This exhibition asks ‘Just how many layers do we present through our public face to the world?’ and ‘Exactly what is real and what is disguised or concealed?’

The exhibition features photography, prints, video, jewellery and sculpture
