The luggage store is pleased to present jumbo prawns art club*, a group exhibition featuring the work of SCATHA G. ALLISON, JASON DUNMAN, and JULIAN PRINCE DASH.
The jumbo prawns art club* is a collective of arbitrary artists, hungry people and designers who make everything independently in the outbacks of the bay area. Their studios will be lifted up and transported to the luggage store gallery for three weeks.
jumbo prawns art club * is part of the luggage store's Short Cuts Program to identify, support and emerge new and/or young curators.
Scatha G. Allison/Miss Velvet Cream: For tomorrows urban nomad. Miss Velvet Cream is neo-couture clothing that embodies silhouettes of the past with dreams of the future, all bridged by the conscious present. MVC design is guided by aesthetics of construction and innovation that are individualized, craft-intensive and committed to excellence in quality, wearability and above all, beauty.
Jason Dunman: "Art and Fashion are the same to me.. I dress myself up pretty and I just try to do the same to whatever I am working on. One could say clothes are the mediums, and the body is a blank canvas or that fresh block of clay. I just put on, or make what feels and looks good... to me."
Julian Prince Dash makes jeans from scratch because it is his destiny. he loves to eat fried chicken and sushi, does not like fashion, belongs in outer space and does it for the kids.
