Paradisce:
A Spring Break Beach Collection
Uselding Fridays
Virtual Event 

Launching Friday, April 2, 2021

Waiting Room x backroom are pleased to present to you, Joshua McGarvey’s latest collection in experimental fashion, Uselding Fridays Paradisce. 

This collection is a collage of processed product. Paradisce is like hot nacho cheese in Cancun on Spring Break. It’s not a celebration of the memory but a reflection on the acceleration we have experienced since a guy got his tongue pierced on TV standing next to Carson Daly at the Spring Break Beach House—I don’t remember if Carson was dating Tara Reid at this point in time, so the exact year escapes me. But seriously, I recently watched a live stream of the Minnesota Orchestra performing a percussion ensemble called “Perfectly Voiceless'' composed by Devonté Hynes and everyone should listen to the song.

A professor once told me, “Paradise isn’t real and trying to get there is like staring into the sun, it will blind you.” I don’t know what that means, but I do think paradise is an oversaturated concept. So my collection is called Paradisce, which is just paradise misspelled.
