Come gli artisti hanno usato gli abiti come mezzo scultoreo e strumento per esplorare il genere, la performance e altro ancora, da Louise Bourgeois ad Andrea Zittel

Cronistoria dell’impegno dell’arte contemporanea con il costume, Garmenting: Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art mostra come gli artisti visivi di tutto il mondo usino gli abiti per esaminare questioni di soggettività, identità e differenza. Con 35 artisti internazionali, Garmenting è organizzata intorno a cinque temi interrelati: funzionalità, differenza culturale, genere, attivismo e performance.

Pionierizzato da artisti come Louise Bourgeois, il garmenting come strategia artistica è emerso negli anni ’60 e ’70, è salito alla ribalta negli anni ’90, con opere di artisti come Nick Cave, Yinka Shonibare e Andrea Zittel, ed è fiorito negli ultimi anni.

Tra gli artisti ricordiamo: Xenobia Bailey, Raphaël Barontini, Sanford Biggers, Karina Bisch, Zoë Buckman, Nick Cave, Enoch Cheng, Sylvie Fleury, Jeffrey Gibson, Annette Messager, Mark Newport, Raul de Nieves, Wanda Raimundi Ortiz, Jacolby Satterwhite, Devan Shimoyama, Yinka Shonibare, Mary Sibande, Franz Erhard Walther e Saya Woolfalk.

How artists have used clothing as a sculptural medium and a tool to explore gender, performance and more, from Louise Bourgeois to Andrea Zittel

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.

Pioneered by artists such as Louise Bourgeois, garmenting as an artistic strategy emerged during the 1960s and ’70s, and came to further prominence during the 1990s, with work by artists such as Nick Cave, Yinka Shonibare and Andrea Zittel, and has flourished in recent years.
