Contextualizing Fashion

October 8 – December 8, 2018 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Drawing upon the symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, design, and architecture, Contextualizing Fashion celebrates the diverse faculty body at Pratt Institute who, as artists and scholars, employ fashion as a prime motivator in their work. The resulting environment showcases a broad yet compelling narrative where body and dress are examined through alternate modalities, such as performance, garment, spectacle, and body adornment. Contextualizing Fashion challenges established perspectives and explores new narratives within the genre.
