Skin Tight: The Sensibility of the Flesh

Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL
June 26-September 5, 2004

Curator: Sylvia Chivaratanond

This show worked to portray art and fashion as two fields that influence and react to one another. The show explored the work of innovative contemporary designers who use clothes to probe the cultural construction of the physical identity, challenging the perception and presentation of the self. The exhibition included garments, shoes, photographs, video, and installations designed by a group of international designers in order to articulate the combined lifestyles of the industrial with the technological and the spatial with the functional.
