Just as yesterday was the 12-12-12, TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture is the sort of event that only comes around once in a life time… or… maybe twice but only if you’re lucky! Tomorrow night will see the T-shirt world’s answer to David Attenborough – Melbourne’s own Eddie Zammit – joining forces with Just Another Agency, the NGV and his own T-world to present TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture. This amazing exhibition will not only examine and dissect the last 25 years of the city’s T-loving graphics, but it will show off some of the most amazing wearable cotton treats as seen through the eyes of an obsessive T-shirt collector. With Eddie digging into his own 4,500+ strong TEE collection, this show will exhibit the true power of Melbourne’s T-shirt past, present and future.
TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture will be on display at NGV Studio (Federation Square) from 7 December 2012 to 17 February 2013. Opening night is 14 December 2012 – see you there!
