Sydney's new centre for culture and ideas kicks off with a deep dive into fashion
Dr Gene Sherman's Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation is transforming for the next five years into the Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas, a new platform for conversations around interdisciplinary arts and cultural forms.
It opens with a Fashion Hub in April, featuring talks, forums, workshops and film screenings. The three keynote speakers are Director of Curatorial Affairs of the Rmn-Grand Palais, Paris, Emmanuel Coquery, interdisciplinary Japanese designer, Akira Minagawa, and Editor-at-Large of Vogue India, Bandana Tewari.
There are also Deep Dive forums designed to ask some of the biggest questions behind fashion including industry ethics and questions over the use of various textiles.
The Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas will continue in October with an Architecture hub, and will be operating until 2022.
