The Hoods Exhibition: Opening Night

Words: Luke Ray Photography: Chris Cooper

Friday night saw the opening of the Fuel Magazine x FXD HOODS art exhibition. An enthusiastic crowd came out to see the unveiling of the ten bonnets upon which ten hand-picked Australian artists had worked.

It was great to see them all hanging in one space after witnessing the evolution of each of the pieces one by one.

We'd like to extend a very special thank you to everyone involved in the event. Of course, the artists made the project special and took it to a level that none of us could imagine. We're humbled and honoured that they agreed to be involved and produced such stunning work.

Special thanks go out to FXD Work Wear who came on board to sponsor the event. Without their support, it would not have been possible to put this thing on and they've been enthusiastic from the get go. They were giving away some gear on the opening night too so that people could see their products up close.

Lastly, a big thank you to the venue, Suus Customs. The Suus crew have been nothing but supportive throughout the production of the show, offering help and man power in the run up to the exhibition. They've been amazing right the way through and for that we are truly grateful.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the show yet, it runs until August 7th at Suus, 12 Smith Street Collingwood, Melbourne. The hoods are all available to purchase by expression of interest.
