I was reading the Dexigner blog and I found an article about this unique t-shirt competition. Cotton is sponsoring a new gallery show where artists incorporate stains into the design of the t-shirt. Dirty laundry is a gallery show devoted to the concept of potential. Whether it’s grass, grease or ketchup, participants of the show are challenged to incorporate the stain into a custom designed silkscreen, turning “ruin into remix.”‘ The idea that we can change our perception of fashion and build a new idea of of the mantra “reduce, recuse, recycle.”
The shirts will be on display at the Nuuanu Gallery in Honolulu, Hawaii from Sept. 4-20.
Dirty Laundry is curated by Jesse Arneson and Chris Thomas of Seeing Red and Scott Na’auao.
So, If you’re going to be in Hawaii in September, be sure to stop by! (I wish I could go…)
