On Friday, April 23, the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons and its new MA in Fashion Studies program will celebrate the publication of the journal, Fashion Projects: On Fashion, Art, and Visual Culture, with a screening highlighting the project’s latest theme, fashion and memory. The event will take place at 6:00 p.m., in Wollman Hall, 65 West 11th Street, fifth floor, and is free and open to the public.
Curated by Tamsen Schwartzman and Francesca Granata, this event will feature a range of short experimental films, including works by the British-based fashion design duo Boudicca, Dutch artist Erwin Olaf, Parsons MFA in Fashion Design and Society Director Shelley Fox, and fashion photographer Laura Sciacovelli.
Established in 2004, Fashion Projects began in New York, with the aim to create a platform highlighting the importance of fashion, specifically experimental fashion. The project aims to foster a dialogue between theory and practice across disciplines through conducting interviews with artists, designers, writers, and curators in the field, as well as through their projects and exhibits.
