THIS IS A HYBRID EVENT
Join Lisa Baldissera, Griffin Art Projects director and curator of SHIFT: Ecologies of Fashion, Form and Textile, for a hybrid (in-person and online) curator’s tour followed by audience Q&A.
SHIFT: Ecologies of Fashion, Form and Textile addresses the intersection of visual art, fashion and textiles, to consider these practices as worldmaking forms of knowledge and a human encounter that comprises every aspect of daily life. Including a residency, symposium, and works by China Adams, Jason Dodge, Olaf Holzapfel, Brian Jungen, Annette Kelm, Christiane Lohr, Medrie MacPhee, Manuel Mathieu, Meret Oppenheim, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Janet Werner, among others, SHIFT considers the ways in which power, colonialism and consumerism are expressed within fashion and proposes forms for an emancipating futurity.
This exhibition is generously supported by The Michael and Inna O’Brian Family Foundation.
