TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture

TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture is a new exhibition at the NGV in Federation Square. Went down there this Sunday and even though it’s not that big it’s a really fun one. As the description goes:

Eddie Zammit is something of a T-shirt hunter. He owns well over 4,000 of them. ‘I have enough tees to wear one a day for over a decade’, he proudly announces. A collaboration between Just Another, NGV Studio and T-world, TEES: Exposing Melbourne’s T-shirt culture examines and dissects the city’s passion for cotton through Zammit’s eyes. Featuring photography by Nicole Reed, TEESincludes visual content on Melbourne’s influential artists, brands and designers. Visitors will also see some classic local tees and prominent Melbourne T-shirt souvenirs. Zammit has dug deep into his T-shirt collection to uncover influential items that demonstrate the power of the city’s T-shirt past.

Anyway, have a look at some of my photos and if you like it and are from Melbourne, maybe you’ll want to go there and see it yourself. I mean, I would have left with a few tees if I could..
