Call For Submissions

Multi-Arts Festival – |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week 'fashionSCAPES' 2012
Produced by Fashion Art Toronto |FAT|

In its seventh year, |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week has a mandate of showcasing artistic disciplines rooted in fashion and their exploration of the notion of clothing and the body in today's time. The festival emphasizes this mandate through the showcase of photography, installation, film, video, mixed media work, performance, dance and design, in an effort to push forward and redefine our perception of the fashion phenomenon.

|FAT| Arts & Fashion Week is now accepting submissions from contemporary artists working in a variety of mediums to exhibit their work in the upcoming festival, April 24 - 28, 2012. Submitted proposals should explore and interpret the subject of fashion, clothing or the body in contemporary culture and the 2012 thematic focus fashionSCAPES. Artists are encouraged to approach the subject through a critical, experimental or playful perspective, and to ultimately broaden the discourse around fashion.

2012 Thematic Approach

The |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week 2012 theme fashionSCAPES mirrors the notion of landscapes; vast, unique, seasonal and ever changing. Artists are invited to respond to fashionSCAPES by investigating one of four sub themes set out for each evening by the festival; land, city, body, future.
