DRESS CODES: Clothing as Metaphor in Contemporary Art

Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY

Exhibition Dates: July 12 - October 4

"Toward the end of the 20th century, many artists seized upon the idea and form of clothing as a subject for their work. Clothing today can be a metaphor for larger issues such as feminist concerns, racial stereotyping, current events, and the violence of war.

The 40 works in DRESS CODES: Clothing as Metaphor in Contemporary Art highlights contemporary artists' interest in the body, while also offering personal, social, cultural, political, and ethnic critiques."

Includes: Louise Bourgeous, Do-Ho Suh, Willie Cole, E.V. Day, Oliver Herring, Beverly Semmes, Judith Shea, Jean Shin, Yinka Shonibare and Andrea Zittel, among others.
