Jeffrey Gibson & Yinka Shonibare CBE RA are included in 'Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art'

Museum of Arts and Design, New York, USA

The first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art, ‘Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art’ examines work by thirty-five international contemporary artists, from established names to emerging voices, several of whom will be exhibiting for the first time in the United States. By either making or altering clothing for expressive purposes, these artists create garments, sculpture, installation, and performance art that transforms 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. The presentation includes ‘The Anthropophagic Effect, Garment no. 4’, 2019 by Jeffrey Gibson and ‘The Ghost of Eliza Jumel’, 2015 by Yinka Shonibare CBE RA. 

Artists include: Xenobia Bailey, Raphaël Barontini, Sanford Biggers, Karina Bisch, Louise Bourgeois, Zoë Buckman, Nick Cave, Enoch Cheng, Sylvie Fleury, Jeffrey Gibson, Oliver Herring, Lexy Ho-Tai, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Annette Messager, Esmaa Mohamoud, Kent Monkman, Mark Newport, Raúl de Nieves, Wanda Raimundi Ortiz, Nazareth Pacheco, Sheelasha Rajbhandari, Hunter Reynolds, Jacolby Satterwhite, Tanis S’eiltin, Beverly Semmes, Devan Shimoyama, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Mary Sibande, Jakkai Siributr, Vivan Sundaram, Franz Erhard Walther, Saya Woolfalk, A young Yu and Andrea Zittel.
