Out of the Closet: Clothing as Imagery in Contemporary Art
This exhibition includes the work of sixteen artists who use the visual language of clothing and dress as a vehicle to explore deeper layers of human behavior and relationships. That clothing is the chosen theme for this exhibition follows obvious connections between clothing and art. Clothing is often considered art, in and of itself. Like art, clothing communicates ideas on a visual level. Both clothing and art employ symbolism to infer abstract concepts. And trends in clothing and art are influenced by similar external factors. An examination of either one requires a consideration of the social, cultural and political climates in which they exist. In this exhibition clothing is employed as metaphor, articles of dress are used for inherent symbolic meaning, and garments are represented in unexpected context. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
