The Museum of Arts and Design is hosting an exhibit called Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary art. The website had great images and
From the website:
The first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art, Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art examines work by thirty-five international contemporary artists, from established names to emerging voices, several of whom will be exhibiting for the first time in the United States. By making or altering clothing for expressive purposes, these artists create garments, sculpture, installation, and performance art that transform dress into a critical tool. Adopted globally as an artistic strategy, garmenting uses the language of fashion to challenge traditional divisions of form and function, cast a critical eye on the construction of gender, advance political activism, and address cultural difference.
Live performances and activations involving five of the artists in Garmenting will be presented on-site throughout the exhibition.
Gallery is located at:

Calling all quilters and crafters! Show your support for the Ukraine with quilting.
Call out for the #sunflowerquiltforukraine Project
Janno McLaughlin @jannoart is a regional artist based in Scone who has set herself the task of creating a quilt as big as a house to deliver to the Ukrainian embassy in London then on to Ukraine to be wrapped Christo-like around a significant landmark.
With hand-stitched squares rolling in from Australia, Africa, New York, NZ and the UK, Janno is aiming for over 9,000 pieces of 30x30 sunflower inspired fabric that she, alongside an army of local CWA women will sew together.
👉CALL TO ACTION
For people all over Australia (and the world) to get crafting and send in a 30 x 30 cm block, based on the themes of sunflowers, hope, optimism, and peace.
PLEASE SEND FINISHED BLOCKS TO JANNO BY JUNE 30, TO PO BOX 746, SCONE, NSW, 2337, UPDATES ON @jannoart
