Throughout the span of many decades, Eurocentric fashion narratives and media have frequently viewed Latin American fashion and art through an outsider’s lens, predominantly depicting it as an overtly exotic stereotype that remains on the periphery. This approach has portrayed the region as a singular and homogenous entity, disregarding the rich tapestry of cultural expressions and creative voices that stem from this multicultural region and its diaspora.

Curated by Eliana Gamboa-Chapman, “Transcultural Threads: Latinx Fashion and Visual Art Reimagined” aims to disrupt and challenge the notion of Latin American fashion as merely traditional or unchanging. The exhibition shifts perspectives towards contemporaneity and sustainability, highlighting the harmonious fusion of cultural knowledge, artisanal techniques, female empowerment, and the integration of natural resources into ethically conscious designs.

Accompanied by visual artists of Latin American heritage living and working in Australia, the exhibition adopts a transcultural perspective. It showcases the manner in which Latinx visual artists draw inspiration from their ancestry, converging spirituality, Indigenous influences, the matriarchal essence of their upbringing, and the profound and intricate life stories of humanity.
