Event Description: “The National Gallery of Jamaica will be opening its newest exhibition 'Beyond Fashion' for the September Last Sundays featuring guest speaker SiiM (Michelle Simone Clarke) and a theatrical performance by Quilt. 'Beyond Fashion' examines the works of artists who have incorporated elements of fashion and it’s creation into their practice. It explores the capacity for fashion themed art making to delve into topics of the personal and the political, as well as providing a vehicle for experimentation and expression that goes beyond everyday fashion. 'Beyond Fashion' includes the works of artists that have experience in fashion design, fashion photography and jewellery making. The exhibition includes the works of Marvin Bartley, Kereina Chang-Fatt, The Girl and The Magpie, Jessica Ogden, Ebony G. Patterson, Alfredo Piola, Ayana Rivière, Peter Dean Rickards, Jasmine Thomas-Girvan, Phillip Thomas, Yasmin Spiro, Seymour Lewis and Cosmo Whyte. Our Guest Speaker SiiM (Michelle Simone Clarke) is an architecture graduate from the University of Toronto who fell in love with fashion after her travels to East and Southeast Asia and Australia. After returning to Jamaica her line became known locally and regionally through her Butterflies & Hummingbirds collection, inspired by the lightness, colour and freedom of the tropical animals. SiiM currently consults as a Creative Director and her team has worked on events such as FASHIONBLOCK, International Reggae Day, Jamaica Carnival, America’s Next Top Model, The Wray and Nephew Contender and many others for over a decade. No strangers to the National Gallery of Jamaica, the Quilt Performing Arts Company was born out of a need for a fresh, new, innovative way of creating performance art ...”Read more: National Gallery of Jamaica Blog

Artist's Statement: “I was not an academic student per se, but certainly a creative one. I would sit in the classroom and gaze endlessly out the window, looking at the clouds dance across the mid-morning sky and their shadows play on the surrounding mountains. On weekends, my father would take us on the longest drives, discovering all the nooks and crannies of my beloved Trinidad and Tobago. A bright, brown-eyed boy looking out the window of the car, as it traversed the land. The breeze against my face, observing and recording our countryside and rural lifestyle. In presenting this body of work, I referenced these traditional influences ...” - Peter Sheppard — Read more at Y Art Gallery T&T and Y Art Gallery-Facebook
