ASL-Interpreted Gallery Tour of Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art

May 7 @ 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm

Free

Join a MAD docent and an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter for a focused and intimate gallery tour of Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art. The first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art, Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art examines work by thirty-five international contemporary artists, from established names to emerging voices, several of whom will be exhibiting for the first time in the United States. By making or altering clothing for expressive purposes, these artists create garments, sculpture, installation, and performance art that transform dress into a critical tool. Adopted globally as an artistic strategy, garmenting uses the language of fashion to challenge traditional divisions of form and function, cast a critical eye on the construction of gender, advance political activism, and address cultural difference.
