Fashion Is a Verb: Art, Performance, and Identity

Dates TBA
South Gallery

Co-curated by Professor of Philosophy Laura DiSumma and Kristen Evangelista, director of the University Galleries, Fashion Is a Verb: Art, Performance, and Identity reveals that fashion is not just a consumer object, but an artistic vehicle and an interactive performance connected to individual and social identity. To ‘fashion’ as a verb is to interrogate oneself and to examine the daily aesthetic practices that are necessary for the establishment of our identities, communities, and values. Works on view will include film, painting, photographs, and textiles by artists Lisa Anne Auerbach, Zehra Doğan, Mari Katayama, ORLAN, Natasha May Platt, Yelaine Rodriguez, Cindy Sherman, and Jean Shin. 

In conjunction with the exhibition, the University Galleries will partner with the Berlin School of Mind and Brain to conduct an experimental interdisciplinary study on the relation between fashion and identity, and the perception of style. Exhibit visitors will participate in a survey about their own fashion choices. Additional programs will include artist talks, hands-on workshops, and panel discussions.
