World of WearableArt – Up Close

Experience World of WearableArt like never before.

A theatrical journey and immersive exhibition that invites you to get up close to the extraordinary garments and explore limitless creativity.

Featuring over 35 award-winning garments, created by designers from New Zealand and around the world, World of WearableArt Up Close (Ao KākahuToi – Kia Tata) is an exhibition at Te Papa in Wellington showcasing some of the most breath-taking creations that we’ve seen in the World of WearableArt Awards Competition.

Discover the jaw-dropping detail and unconventional creativity of wearable art. From 500 abandoned tents transformed into avant-garde works of art, to a wearable Axminster carpet inspired by Frida Kahlo, to a cathedral made from more than 2300 individually cut pieces of laser etched felt, learn about the unique stories behind the designs and be inspired as something WOW this way comes.

For a strictly limited season only!

The exhibition will run from Saturday 12 December 2020 - Sunday 14 February 2021
