Communication through Arts in the twenty-first century has a wider reach than ever before. Once a sign of exalted social standing, art has taken on a new persona that is continuously evolving, its perception shaped by a complexity of ever-changing dynamics.

thestudioArena is a fashion magazine of Transculturation, Contemporary Art, and DIY Culture, that utilizes the latest communication technology to create and document fashion projects for an international audience. Interacting with a global community, thestudioArena uses fashion and contemporary art to encourage awareness of a cultural worldview, improve attitudes towards cultural differences, and develop cultural competence.

studioArena is an online fashion media center dedicated to experimental interactive projects; including films, avant guard videos, and live performances.

  • Fashion is increasingly a visual part of our global reality. the studioArena explores moving fashion beyond the development of European mercantile capitalism, commodity fetishism, and the politics of production (the way fashion emphasizes consumption at the expense of production.
  • Fashion has always played a leading role in constructing images and meanings during periods of rapid social, economic and technological change. It can act out instability or loss, or it can stake out the territory of new social and sexual identities.
