The exhibition Fashion/Culture showcases Colorado artists using photography to explore the intersections between art, fashion, beauty and contemporary culture. Some artists challenge the ideals of beauty while others look into themes of gender and identity as these are reflected in fashion. The diverse group of works illustrates the many connections between Denver’s growing fashion and arts communities. Featured artists include Sara Ford, Mark Sink, Kristen Hatgi, Tom McIntyre, Richard Peterson, Sydney Peterson, Mario Zoots, Jordin Wommack, Candice Knudson, Marla Rutherford, Reese St. Germain, Derrick Velasquez, Laura Shill, Jenn Crowe, Melanie Watson, and Charlie Price with Amber Fries. A selection of vintage photographs from the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC) archives and History Colorado provide an interesting juxtaposition between past and present.
