Well Worn' Is seeking artists to transpose their practices into items of clothing, for exhibition in West London in Late September!

"Well Worn" presents a unique challenge to the traditional exhibition format by asking invited artists to distil their practice into a reclaimed item of clothing, which will then be showcased in a retail-inspired environment.

By encouraging the audience to physically engage with the artworks by wearing the garments, the exhibition aims to spark a dialogue about the role of identity in art-making, the perception of artists' practices, and the significance of audience participation in art. Through this innovative approach, "Well Worn" seeks to push the boundaries of conventional exhibitions and offer a thought-provoking experience for all who attend.


Selected artists will be notified on or before 10th of June, you will then be sent a second-hand item of clothing to work with.

Let us know if you have any questions! 

Alexander Harding and Alek Mechlinski
