Reboot: Function, Fashion and the Sneaker

Our upcoming exhibition, Reboot: Function, Fashion and the Sneaker, is currently being installed in the gallery. Join our Facebook event here.

Design, fashion and popular culture merge in this striking sports shoe design exhibition, curated by artisan. Olympic performance shoes rub heels with collaborations between iconic brands, artists and designers including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Yohji Yamamoto, Keith Haring, Mihara Yasuhiro, Undefeated and Alexander McQueen.

This exhibition also incorporates the Converse Blank Canvas Project: a collection of classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers creatively customised by leading Australian artists and designers. The customised shoes are to be sold by auction during the exhibition period.

To set the scene, the walls of the artisan gallery are currently being graffitied by artists from Jugglers Art Space and are looking quite spectacular! 

The exhibition will be opened by Chris Hartley (of the Queensland Bulls) at 6pm on Thursday the  21st of June. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to info@artisan.org.au or call us on (07) 3215 0800.
