In Some Form or Fashion

Galleries

Discover In Some Form or Fashion, a new, free exhibition created exclusively by the Momentary.

Six contemporary artists transform the galleries with mixed-media artworks exploring the cultural implications of fashion. Together, they invite us to consider how the garments we purchase, wear, and dispose of shape our identities.

Embracing the unique architecture of the Momentary, the mixed-media installations will be on view throughout the building, creating a diverse and engaging exploration of the intersection of art and fashion while examining the role of consumer culture in our society.

In Some Form or Fashion is organized by the Momentary and curated by Kaitlin Garcia-Maestas, associate curator, with Taylor Jasper, curatorial assistant.
