The Quest for the Perfect Shirt is a project exploring the production and presentation of masculinity by making shirts in public places. Each shirt has been made as a response to either a single conversation, or group conversations about masculinity. The exhibition at Bishop Auckland Town Hall will be the first time that the whole collection of shirts will be presented to the public. Richard Bliss is an artist/tailor who works from his studio in Durham at Ushaw Historic House and Gardens.
Richard Bliss will be present every Wednesday afternoon from 12noon to 4pm until 30th November, 2023 undertaking ‘live sewing’ and conversations as he adds to his collection.
