​Join us as we look ‘inside’ and explore those items which, over history, have prepared us to go ‘out’.

Kiwi North’s new exhibition Inside Out delves into the personal and intimate world of underwear and how under-things have been shaped by social etiquette and in turn shaped our bodies. What is a ‘teddy’? What do ‘stays’ do? 

From the practical to the elaborate, ladies’, men’s, and children’s garments will be on display in their many forms.

Historic Whangārei’s fashions will also be featured through photographs and shopping catalogues from the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries.

By showcasing the hidden histories and workmanship behind these collections we can explore changing gender roles, aesthetics and technologies.
