Exhibits!


DRESS REDRESS
Through September 25 at the Kniznick Gallery within Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. This exhibit brings together 8 contemporary artists who address the relationship between clothing and identity. With sub-themes as varied as religion, memory, gender roles, popular media, and environmental awareness, each artist challenges us to rethink clothing’s significance. The exhibition seeks to create an open dialogue about how and why our identities are so closely linked to what we wear. Click here for details

Some of this material was gathered from the Costume Society of America which I am a member of. Thanx to them for getting exhibit info together on a regular basis!
