Transfashional Lab
Friday 10 February –  Tuesday 4 April, 09.00 – 17.00 (Mon – Fri)
Austrian Cultural Forum, 28 Rutland Gate, London SW7 1PQ

The exhibition, conceived by the ACF Warsaw and curator Dobrila Denegri, brings together emerging young artists and designers from Austria, the UK and Poland who work at the intersection between art and fashion. The exhibition explores the ways in which art and fashion can shape new positions and contribute to current social, economic, cultural and environmental debates. The pieces on display are more than just wearable and functional items; they can be seen as tools for reflection, experimentation and self-expression. Transfashional Lab is presented in collaboration with the Polish Cultural Institute in London and London College of Fashion, UAL.
