ARCHIVE > THE FABRIC OF CULTURES: SYSTEMS IN THE MAKING

Handmade Italian fashion by FrancyG, Arte e Ricamo, and others, explore materiality and the art of making.

The Fabric of Cultures: Systems in the Making

A multimedia installation curated by Eugenia Paulicelli

October 5 - December 15, 2017

The Fabric of Cultures: Systems in the Making brings together artists, designers, CUNY students and local communities to reflect on the art of making, craftsmanship and technology in a globalized world. The exhibition calls attention to the larger systems at play that influence the state of fashion, craft and aesthetics that are constantly under development, and in flux. This new branch of the Fabric of Cultures project considers the new Made in Italy within a transnational context and in conversation with other cultures and traditions.
 

The Fabric of Cultures is part of a larger, partly digital, pedagogic and research project directed by Eugenia Paulicelli, Professor of Italian at Queens College and Director of Fashion Studies at the Graduate Center.
