Venue Kent State University Museum
Location Kent, USA
Curator Margarita Benitez and Noël Palomo-Lovinski (guest curators)

The innovative subject of the exhibition has potential to shape future ideas of fashion and business. The exhibition seeks to address pioneering applications of technology that will have a radical effect on the future of personal expression, image and clothing. The exhibition will be divided into four categories: Generative Technology Design, Democracy of Preference/ Subversion of Traditional Production, DIY, Technology and Expression. These four categories will illustrate how designers are creatively addressing technology in a wide variety of forms to express changing 21st-century culture. The applications of technology allow articulation of complex philosophical ideas and context, the perceptions of uses of impending technology, the fostering of a new relationship with craft, and individual means of production that are shaping future conceptions of fashion and clothing.
