Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art

Raphaël Barontini | Museum of Arts and Design

The Museum of Arts and Design is delighted  to present the very first global survey exhibition dedicated to the use of clothing as a medium of visual art: Garmenting/  Costume as Contemporary Art. The exhibition, which will be on view March 12 to August 14 2022, examines works by thirty-five international contemporary artists including Raphael Barontini. Either by making or altering clothes these artists will be creating sculpture, garnments, perfomance  and installation art that transforms  dresss into critical tools for investigate issues of subjectivity, difference and identity.


Alexandra Schwartz , the New-York based art historian, curator and adjunct professor at the School of  Graduate Studies at  SUNY Fashion Institute of Technology,  will be guest curator.
