Crate presents Shades

Crate presents Shades Opening Night: Friday 22nd March, 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Open: Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th March, 12.00 noon - 5.00pm

What meaning can be assigned to the application of lipstick? Many women leave a visible trace of themselves behind each time they blot their lipstick on a tissue. Do all women perform the action of applying lipstick in the same way? Why do we do it? Who do we do it for? Is the application of lipstick itself a sensual act? The names of lipstick colours themselves can be evocative. What does your choice of lipstick say about you? These are some of the questions that are posed by this project.

Through a variety of media the artists hope to stimulate some interesting conversations among the audience on the subject of lipstick. Therefore this show is seen as the midpoint to establishing a deeper understanding of this beauty ritual.

Shades is a collaborative exchange of artistic research by Eleanore Carlson, Joan Hobson and Sara Kayes. The artists welcome you to the conversation.
