My and Nutty Tarts project DRESSCODE is part of the BOUTIQUE – Where Art Meets Fashion exhibition i Berlin.


Opening: 21.1.2016 | 19:00
Exhibition 22.1.–28.3.2016

Art meets fashion in the new cross-over exhibition BOUTIQUE at the Nordic Embassies in Berlin.

In our everyday life, art and fashion have always been interconnected in the ways we dress, but it isn’t until recently that fashion has really gained a strong position in the art scene. We see a growing number of fashion exhibitions in art museums and galleries, fashion stores resemble art galleries more and more – and vice versa.

Instead of creating a competition between the two art forms, BOUTIQUE rather invites the visitor to reflect upon the similarities between art and fashion. It highlights the appeal of fashion, at the same time engaging in social issues and questions of consumption, mass production and beauty ideals. In pairs of two, sixteen Finnish fashion designers and artists have created unique pieces for the exhibition. The show comes to Berlin after exhibitions in New York, Washington, Tokyo and Helsinki.

With the following artists:
Minna Parikka & Jani Leinonen
Salla Salin & Timo Rissanen
