Featuring select fan gear from the fields of art, music and fashion, CULTURE WEAR explores the question of commodification through the lens of clothing. Generally referred to as “merch”, these wearable are more than mere memorabilia. They extend the artistic practice, but at the same time act as vehicles for micro-funding and identification by small communities. The juxtaposition of these aspects – the non-commercial nature of culture and the materiality of consumption – is at the heart of CULTURE WEAR.
