Described as “an all new, exuberant riot of profound junk”, Dare to Wear is a celebration of art that can be worn. Curator and Wild Old Woman, Sue Kreitzman set artists a wild range of wardrobe related questions, including “Will flamboyance set you free?”, “Will wearing beige really kill you?” and “What should we wear for the afterlife”. Their responses are displayed in this eclectic exhibition in the St Pancras Crypt Gallery. It runs until 4th November and special event will be held to mark Día de los Muertos on 1st November. Admission is free.
