ToTal Shirt Show

 

The t-shirt was originally designed by the U.S. Navy over 100 years ago. The lightweight, easy to clean fabric soon became standard issue for people across the globe. The t-shirt skyrocketed to even greater popularity when Marlon Brando wore one in A Streetcar Named Desire in 1951. By the late 1960s, tie-dyed and painted t-shirts had become an artform and a means of self-expression for many.  Now, many artists have embraced the t-shirt as a canvas for their artistic output. Axle is pleased to present an exhibition of art by several New Mexican artists who use the t-shirt as an integral part of their artistic expression. Artists; M. Gold, James Black, Michael "Metal" Wieclaw, David Sloan, Tim Jag, Ann Jag, Good Folk, Derek No-Sun Brown Joel Nakamura, Sarah Hart, Edie Tsong, Bett Williams and Mayumi Nishida/Jon Carver.
