Material Translations: Japanese Fashion at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago

 

The Art Institute of Chicago, Tadao Ando Galley, 111 S. Michigan Ave.
Through April 7

To commemorate the 25th year of SAIC's Fashion Resource Center (FRC), the FRC presents Japanese garments from its collection in collaboration with the Department of Asian Art at the Art Institute of Chicago. This exhibition marks the first collaboration between the FRC and the museum, as well as the first time that fashions from this collection are on public view. The dramatic interior of the gallery designed by Tadao Ando is a fitting setting for these avant-garde garments that took the fashion world by storm.
