Ballet & Fashion
A joint project between The Australian Ballet and the NGV, Ballet & Fashion showcased collaborations between couture fashion designers and international dance companies over the past three decades. Opening The Australian Ballet’s 50th birthday week, this exhibition design was inspired by Robert Wilson who'd created some of the sets for the original ballet performances.
The sound we make together (Melbourne)
For this exhibition at Federation Square, Harrell Fletcher found local participants to select NGV collection works they then displayed alongside works they'd specifically created for the NGV alongside photographs of them collaborating with Fletcher. Focusing on sustainable materials to enhance community quality of life, this exhibition design was made of 100% recyclable materials for the first time in NGV history.
BLACK IN FASHION
FROM MOURNING TO NIGHT
This fashion and textiles exhibition explored the symbolism and enduring use of black in Australian and international fashion. The garments and portraits exhibited ranged from seventeenth to twentieth centuries, representing contradictions of death, power, elegance, urbanity, subversion and sex appeal through fashion and painting. The exhibition design employed lace imprints as glass decals on cases.
