Haut(e) is an art fashion show presented by the Moving Art Gallery featuring works by Kelvin Stidwill and Comfort Survival, with sounds by Jayel.
Based on the importance of providing space and opportunity for new and upcoming artists based in Ottawa, Haut(e) also aims to address the ongoing issue of sustainability by recognizing the artistry within the textile medium. Fashion itself is a form of expression, but under the current climate of changing attitudes towards how we consume clothing and view it in the sphere of art, the commercial aspect of the industry can seem to extract the artistic vitality of the works created. Cloth-work is a sculptural practice, and can be contemplated upon in the same light as all other forms of art held within gallery walls. In an effort to showcase a classic runway show by highlighting Black and Queer designers in a fine art context, The MAG has joined forced with Gallery 101 to re-introduce the idea of a fashion runway show as a high art, as a moving object, made by young, active and local designers.
Join us for a night of music, togetherness and support for your local artists for a night of iconic looks and incredible fashions!
This event is powered by The City Of Ottawa.
The Moving Art Gallery
Established in 2020, the Moving Art Gallery was formed out of the necessity of equitable representation in visual arts. the Nation’s Capital has a severe lack of young Black & femmes in art spaces; our mandate is to uplift those who experience life in that intersection.
