Go For Baroque
A fashion / design event and photography competition based on the exhibition, “New Baroque: The Imperfect Pearl”
April 23 - April 23, 2016

Go For Baroque

Emcee: Amy Shea, Executive Director, Santa Fe Street Fashion Week

Featuring: Dylan Anderson, Ezra Estes, Kathleen Ferguson-Huntington, David Forlano, Olivia Hawkins,  Ann Jag, Kay Khan, Alicia Piller, Ellie Beth Scott, Andrea Vargas, and Justice Whitaker

Inspired by the gallery’s exhibition, New Baroque: The Imperfect Pearl, artists and designers have been challenged to create fashions in two categories Pret-a-porter (wear if you dare) and Couture (high art) for a catwalk and gallery presentation. Photographers have also been challenged to capture the event and extravagance in a photo competition.

The gallery invites the creatively-minded of Santa Fe to experience the show, get inspired, go home and devise and design clothing and textile works in the spirit of exuberance and extravagance. OTT (over the top) efforts are highly encouraged and two categories will be assigned: Pret-a-porter (wear if you dare) and Couture (high art). Entries for the Couture category need not be wearable, but should express a creative approach to fiber or textile art. The best and most creative submissions in both categories will be presented in the gallery during the last two weeks of the New Baroque exhibition.

The public opening and event will be held on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Artists and designers will speak to the audience about their work and a runway presentation will be held. Amy Shea, Executive Director, Santa Fe Street Fashion Week will emcee the event. The best in the two categories will be chosen by audience ballot and the winners will be the recipients of the coveted "David" award for "Couture/Art" and the Richard award for ready-to-wear.

The gallery teams up with social media gurus @SimplySantaFeNM to host another Instagram-based photography competition, with a new twist and edge. Photographers, professional and amateur, are also invited on Saturday April 23, 2016 to document the event from start to finish and must post their individual images on Instagram to compete using #GoForBaroque. The competition will be based on artists submissions of 4 to 10 of their images assembled as a storyboard reflecting their personal experience and interpretation of some aspect of the afternoon’s activities. The top five storyboards will also be chosen by ballot and the winner (and recipient of the equally-coveted "DR" award) announced at the closing party on May 7.

To further provide greater exposure for all participating photographers, permission will be requested for artists and designers to use these images for professional purposes and acknowledge the respective photographer in the credit line. Images from the finalists and winner will also be posted on the gallery’s Instagram and Facebook pages.

Deadline for submission of fashions: April 11th, 2016.

Submission requirements: Hi-res jpegs (minimum 300 dpi) along with detailed description of work submitted (dimensions, materials, etc).
