Emmet O'Dwyer

After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2008 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Printmaking), Emmet O'Dwyer went on to complete his Honours degree at Monash University. In 2009 he participated in Second Nature at BUS Gallery, a group show with several artists including Insert Coin Here artists Alexander Ouchtomsky and Kyoko Imazu, and a solo exhibition at the Firestation Print Studio and Gallery in 2008.

Fashion is created in large part by the media. In the work I'm making for this show I'll produce a piece of media, a minature zine, and put that into the capsule. Fashion pops up in all aspects of life, and is really patterns of thinking among groups of people, and that is something this zine will hopefully examine.

Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
