Igor Grubić: Art You Can Wear T-shirt
With the current closure of galleries, museums and public art spaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the time to get art out, about and onto the site we take with us everywhere—our bodies.
Putting art front and centre, Art You Can Wear invited submissions from artists and non-artists worldwide for designs that have been printed on a limited edition run of T-shirts. Ten winning designs were chosen from hundreds of entries by a panel including MUMA’s Director Charlotte Day, City of Melbourne’s Design Director Jocelyn Chiew, artist Dr Christian Thompson and artist/Director of Monash Art Projects Professor Callum Morton.
Igor Grubić is a Croatian artist based in Zagreb whose multimedia practice spans photography, video, site-specific actions in public space and documentary forms. Often producing his works over periods of many years, Grubić is a keen observer of social and political change and has documented transitions in Croatian society and industry, among many other subjects. The artist's T-shirt adopts Mickey Mouse as an icon of industrial entertainment to speculate on spiritual evolution. Seated in lotus position, Grubić's transformed Mickey was originally part of a triptych that the artist produced as a graffiti work, posing the idea that work towards the common good begins on an individual level.
