If you thought the exhibitions at Bendigo Art Gallery couldn’t get any better, well, here’s news for you.
Bendigo Art Gallery has just announced Dark Wonderland, which will be Toni Maticevski‘s first ever exhibition. With work spanning over Toni Maticevski’s 20 year career, including objects from his early practice to his most recent work, the Monaco Gown worn by Princess Mary to the King’s 80th birthday, and the commissioned gold lame gown worn by Jessica Mauboy for Eurovision 2014.
Maticevski is one of Australia’s most talented fashion designers, who is also recognised internationally for his designs, and has created a body of work that is diverse and focused on ideas and creative challenges.
Karen Quinlan (Director of the Bendigo Art Gallery), commenting on the exhibition, said: “Toni Maticevski has managed to morph, adapt and defy the boundaries of fashion, crossing the line that divides fashion design with fine art. For anyone who has ever dreamed of wearing a masterpiece, this is a must-see exhibition,”
The exhibition opens 13 August – 20 November 2016. Bendigo Art Gallery
