The logic of the commodity is fetishist. The logic of shoe collecting is — what logic? Do you have fetish footwear buried deep in your closet? It is time to bring out your shoes.
In the spirit of Miss General Idea, the gallery has invited women, men and others to contribute one sexy specimen of feminine footwear to an exhibition in the library showcases. Entries from on- and off-campus were welcome. Security: excellent; discretion: guaranteed; gallery staff reserved the right to restrict entries. Shoes could be entered between 25 August and 4 September, for return in time for Hallowe’en, 28 through 31 October. Viewers voted for their favourite shoes and a $50 cash prize was awarded.
