"Billions of people are wearing T-shirts right now," Eddie Zammit, art director and exhibition curator. Melbourne-based curator and founder of T-world, Eddie Zammit's globally-relevant collection takes centre stage in this exhibition that tells the story of the T-shirt from underwear to outerwear design icon. From art, music, politics, pop culture and sport – the show is set to explore key designs of the many T-shirt tribes who have embraced the social canvas of this streetwear staple.
Co-curated by local T-shirt (and sneaker) collector Lee Ingram, the show brings to Perth hundreds of the most significant expressions of T-shirt culture showcasing key artists, brands and designers from the past thirty years. T-shirts right now reveals a story of creativity and design across illustration, typography and photography and demonstrates the collective themes and uses of this unassuming design icon throughout the 20th-century. This exhibition is organised by the Art Gallery of WA with Lead Curator Eddie Zammit, and Co-curator Lee Ingram. Image credit - Eddie Zammit. Photo by Nicole Reed.
