Distance Dress-Up: Party of 1

Distance Dress Up invites everyone to dress up in their favourite party outfit, take a selfie of themselves and post on IG with tag #distancedressup! This participatory photo project is inspired by the exhibition Studio 54: Night Magic and the social restrictions that are currently in place due to Covid.  

We’ll launch our new Distance Dress-Up project on Wednesday December 16 at 11 am with curator Geneviève Wallen, who offers a personalized take on playing dress-up at home and gives us the details of her look with Sarah Febbraro, AGO’s Assistant Curator, Youth & Engagement. Watch on FacebookEveryone is invited to share their distance dress-up look with us on AGO Youth Instagram using #distancedressup

Geneviève Wallen is a Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal and Tkaronto/Toronto based independent curator and writer. Wallen's practice is informed by diasporic narratives, intersectional feminism, intergenerational dialogues, BIPOC alternative futures and healing platforms. Her ongoing research focuses on the notion of longevity as a methodology of ongoing resistance and care work in the arts.
