Fashion Show is an exhibition of international artists that look at clothing as subject matter, material, and advocacy. From explorations of the ways in which fashion lends itself to self-representation to investigations into the economic and ecological effects of 'fast fashion,' the exhibition reveals how clothing becomes a means of activism and protest.
Alicia Framis’ series Is My Body Public? presents images of fourteen women holding forth sheets of transparent fabric, each embroidered with the title phrase in their respective languages. While resembling pieces of lingerie, the dresses are actually banners for demonstrations, having been worn in the artist’s public performances. Framis challenges ideas of privacy in her practice, with her participants literally undressing to confront the sexism prevalent in today’s society.
