Dress:Undress brings together two unique exhibitions that pull on similar threads of self-expression, gender, and identity while attempting to redress historicized images of women and ideas about the role of women in art.
The Red Dress:
Conceived by British artist Kirstie Macleod, The Red Dress project provides an artistic platform for women around the world, many of whom are vulnerable and live in poverty, to tell their personal stories through embroidery.
Frippery, Finery, Frills: Works in Conversation by Barbara Ishikura and Sam Fields:
Drawing from historicized images of women in art, fiction, and our collective imagination, artists Barbara Ishikura and Sam Fields explore intimacy through imagery, process, and materials.
