Liquid Art House Presents ‘Ready To Bare’ – An international array of artists, photographers and designers curated for a fashion-inspired group exhibition
Ready To Bare examines raw beauty with the extensive vintage works of Lithuanian photographer Rimantas Dichavičius, whose once-banned nudes were considered breakthrough in the Soviet era. Also featured in the show: the traveling Gianni Versace Mural by Boston artist Giovanni DeCunto, a graffiti-like shrine to the late designer, replete with crowdsourced tributes from all over the world. LAH guests will contribute to the painting. French artist Fanny Bucchioty apprenticed in Parisian couture fashion houses before taking her inspiration to canvas, whereas Polish artist Izabella Kay takes her art straight to fabric in her wearable art Foularts collection out of London. The prints and paintings of New England artist Josie Morway harken back to 1900’s women’s fashion, art by Gints Grinbergs, whilst the psychedelic art of Jordan Piantedosi seems ripped from a 1970’s London runway. In all, a dozen artists will show along with fashion-inspired “shorts” planned for the multimedia wall and pop-up sales/shows over a three month period.
“READY TO BARE” is on display October 8, 2014 – January 5, 2015 at Liquid Art House at The Arlington, 100 Arlington Street in Boston’s Back Bay
