Art of Fashion

Syndicate content

In general, fashion and art are considered to be totally different. Art is dealing with important issues; fashion with mere appearances. Fashion is temporal; art universal.

Still not all fashion designers are guided by what’s hot and what’s not. On the contrary. Some of them work with big and universal themes like identity and individuality.

They pose questions like: who am I and who do I become by what I wear? What is my relationship to my surroundings and to other people, who might wear a different type of clothes?

For the exhibition The Art of Fashion five special fashion designers were invited to make an autonomous work: Hussein Chalayan, Walter Van Beirendonck, Anna-Nicole Ziesche, Naomi Filmer en Viktor & Rolf. In this series you’ll find them portrayed. Curator José Teunissen explains how the exhibition originated.

The Art of Fashion exhibition is on view until January 10th 2010 at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
