There is a clear and constant fetishisation of the human body – both male and female – in the genre of fashion films, but the queer element in these works is absorbed by their audiences often without being properly registered. Queer Eye: Fashion Films is a selection of short fashion films that aims to highlight the ways in which such works can invite queer readings and interpretations, thereby stimulating the senses of a queer audience.
With films by Nick Knight, Alice Hawkins, Leonard Mpa, Fia Yaqub, Kevin Calero, Marie Schuller, Max Shishkin, Romain Brau, Ruth Hogben, RamÓn J. GoÑi, Jason Bradbury and Bell Soto.
Curated by Konstantinos Menelaou with Josefeen Foxter of Fringe!, Matthew Zorpas of The Gentleman Blogger and Marie Schuller of Showstudio.
