Fashion & Freedom

[DWAN] is taking part in a super After Hours event by Instigate Arts, What IS She Wearing? for Wonder Women 2016.

From the Suffragettes to Red Lipstick Day, the Slut Walks and the Pussy Riots to butch and drag, women have long utilised that which is used to restrict them to strive for freedom and an identity on their own terms. Through an evening of intersectional feminist debate, performance and film, Instigate Arts explore the aesthetics of protest and consider how clothing and style are used to shape, define and own gender, sexuality and identity. Manchester Art Gallery, 3 March, 5pm-8pm

What IS She Wearing? foregrounds Manchester Art Gallery’s upcoming exhibition Fashion & Freedom – a teaser snippet shown below.
