Fashion Drive: extreme clothing in the visual arts
‘Fashion Drive: extreme clothing in the visual arts’, 20 April – 15 July 2018, @kunsthaus_zuerich. Co-curated by Catherine Hug and Christoph Becker, this exhibition explored the lengths people and artists have gone to represent themselves and their sitters in art and design across five centuries. Themes explored included fashion as language, the power represented through clothes, and the impact of clothing in social histories. The curators used clothing on mannequins and hangers, paintings, sculpture and social media to reflect contemporary concerns in fashion’s history.
