Tuesday, June 14 Friends of Art: Museum of Art & Design (MAD) “Garmenting” tour and studio visit
Rachelle Dang ’01, who is a MAD Artist Fellow, has arranged for us to visit her studio space on the 6th Floor of MAD and have a tour of the Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art exhibition, on view through August 14. Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art examines work by thirty-five international contemporary artists and is the first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art. 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.
Rachelle, a 2021 MAD Burke Prize finalist, combines sculpture and installation to comment on colonialism’s lasting impact on the natural environment. By bringing together historical material, botanical research, personal memories, and poetic allusion, she encourages audiences to deconstruct the past and reimagine the future. Dang was born in Honolulu and lives in Brooklyn. She serves as Critic at the Yale School of Art and previously taught at Hunter College, City University of New York.
Time: Tuesday, June 14, 2 PM Exhibition Tour, Studio Visit at 1:30 PM or following the tour
