“Fashion is only the attempt to realise art in living forms and social intercourse” - Sir Francis Bacon

The relationship between the visual arts and fashion has long been pondered and debated. It represents the intersection of numerous planes of reflection. They both act within reality and nourish it, contributing to its renewal. They are both social objects with a fundamental cultural dimension, while at the same time being part of an important economic system. They are both material culture and commodities, experiences and communications, commentary of our identities and societies, entertainment, language and fantasy, hierarchy and luxury.

For this project, we explore the way fashion and visual arts interact and interconnect with an intentional juxtaposition. What kind of dialogue and emotions exude between these distinct creative practices? How do they inform each other when displayed side by side?

One major source of inspiration for this exhibition is acclaimed British photographer Sir Cecil Beaton's editorial photoshoot for Vogue US entitled American Fashion: The New Soft Look. Published in the March 1951 issue, it showed two models wearing Haute Couture garments by Irene and Henri Bendel while posing in front of Jackson Pollock’s Lavender Mist, Number 28, Number 27, and Autumn Rhythm.

Beaton’s stylized manner softened the manic behavior of Jackson Pollock's paintings with the elegance of the designers’ fashion beauty. Skillful color matching between what is in front and what is behind unite the two subjects.

This exhibition, in collaboration with Homme_DC and Agents of Alternatives, implores you to further look at fashion through art and vice versa, and to capture the way fashion and art interact when displayed as objects next to each other.
