Additionally, the exhibition will see a curated selection of vintage T-shirts and memorabilia up for sale. Accompanied by two limited homage T-shirts from StrangewaysNYC that celebrate the Hidden by Rags exhibition. StrangewaysNYC’s Hidden by Rags exhibition will be on February 21-March 1 at The Beach Gallery in Tokyo.
