Join us for our last virtual FIT Authors talk of the semester! Art Market Studies professor Alexandra Schwartz reads from her book, Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art.
Chronicling contemporary art’s engagement with costume, Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art shows how visual artists around the globe are using garments to examine issues of subjectivity, identity and difference. Featuring 35 international artists, Garmenting is organized around five interrelated themes: functionality, cultural difference, gender, activism, and performance.
