CALL FOR PROPOSALS - Toronto Arts & Fashion Week 'fashionSCAPES' 2012, Toronto, Canada
Produced by Fashion Art Toronto |FAT|

Starting this month, artists interested in participating can submit proposals online through our website:

We are currently accepting proposals in:

• Submitted proposals should reflect on the notion of clothing, the body, fashion and the 2012 thematic focus 'fashionSCAPES'


The |FAT| 2012 theme fashionSCAPES mirrors the notion of landscapes; vast, unique, seasonal and ever changing. Artists are invited to respond to fashionSCAPES by investigating one of four sub themes set out for each evening by the festival; land, city, body, future.

Exploring global landscapes and physical environments. Artists reflect on land both as a physical space determined by geography, texture, the elements and nature; and land as a global place determined by boundaries, people and places.

Transitory and in the now, the night surveys art influenced by metropolises and man-made environments; streets, structures and cityscapes. It examines how architecture, communication, technology, consumerism and urban life shape city cultures and trends.

Artists investigate the human form as a playing field for expressing identity, sexuality and gender. Through seduction, manipulation, exaggeration and movement, they conceal, reveal, morph and sculpt bodyscapes, defining the body's limits and possibilities.

The theme examines art that looks forward into the unexpected, inventive, extreme or imagined. New materials, technology, media and innovative processes define indefinite possibilities and futurescapes.
