We’ll go out on a limb and guess your wearing clothes right now, but we can’t be sure.
In any case, you’ve most likely worn clothes in very recent past. Most times we just zip it up and get on with our day. Not today.
Public Pool has asked nine artists –– sculptors, painters, knitters, fashion designers, and the like –– to take a deeper look. To examine our relationship to our clothes…or maybe even your clothes.
Participating Artists Include
• Lisa Anne Auerbach
• Olayami Dabls
• Jessica Frelinghuysen
• Anne Harrington Hughes
• Sarah Lapinski
• Mark Newport
• Lauren Rassel
• Cristin Richard
• Sarah Wagner
We use clothes as a billboard, identity constructor or costume. We use them to turn ourselves into walking sculptors, business people, swimmers, provocateurs, bikers and more. Any way you slice it, clothes do much more than cover our bodies, if they manage to do that.
So come see what the artists think. The results might make you wonder how something so simple, is really more complicated. Or it just might make you feel naked. Either way it’s worth a trip.
If you come to the opening night, it’s special, so please put dimes in your penny loafers.
UN-Dress:RE-Dress begins with an opening reception November 12, 7-10 p.m. Refreshments provided courtesy of Traffic Jam & Snug Restaurant. The exhibition runs through December 17. Public Pool is open Saturdays from 1 to 6PM.
