Unholy Alliance: art + fashion meet again

Nick Cave Lydia K Clemencia Labin Kent Monkman Matthew Vescovo Viktor & Rolf
The always cozy yet contentious relationship between art and fashion raises its well-coiffed head again! Delightful and socially charged, flamboyant and political, whimsical and severe, this version of the art vs. fashion discourse is played out by Canadian and international artists through the mediums of painting, photography, installation, couture and sculpture.

Sponsored by PUMA Canada and MAC Cosmetics.

Unholy Alliance and Tell it like it is are part of the Alphabet City Festival 2006: TRASH www.alphabet-city.org

Future Species: Steven Meisel | Makeover Madness
This photo-installation is an edited sequence from an editorial fashion story that was originally published in the July 2005 issue of Italian Vogue, entitled Makeover Madness.

Steven Meisel is fashion's pre-eminent image-maker. He has been prolific and innovative in his depiction of the trends and associations of every season in fashion since the late 1980's. Each season, he has also created some of fashion's most memorable ad campaigns including for Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and Versace and influential editorial work for American and Italian Vogue. -Courtesy of Steven Meisel / Art + Commerce
