NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Just Another collaborated with T-World, the world’s only t-shirt journal to produce the exhibition TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt Culture, which showcased Melbourne’s passion for t-shirts through the eyes of avid collector, Eddie Zammit.
TEES exhibited some of Melbourne’s most influential artists, brands, and designers from past to present at the National Gallery of Victoria’s Studio. A plethora of iconic t-shirts were featured including souvenir t-shirts from concerts and sporting events, to local clothing brands. Visitors gained insight into Melbourne’s unsung heroes of the t-shirt world including independent apparel stores, local screen-printers and those who bought them – the fans.
TEES received international recognition as a historic lesson in consumer culture and nostalgia. With 25,000+ visitors over the span of three weeks, TEES gained press coverage in Desktop Magazine, Concrete Playground, The Herald Sun, and The Age.
