Over the weekend MOMA PS1 held the MOVE! exhibition that featured 12 collaborations between fashion designers and modern artists for a two day long event. The collaborations were live performances and interactive installations.
While the spacious galleries of PS1 were notably not filled during this event, what was there was fun, interactive, and thought-provoking; blurring the lines between fashion and fine art.
A favorite of ours was the Terence Koh featuring Calvin Klein collaboration. This one definitely was more fine art than fashion. (we are fans of Koh’s work!)
Another highlight from the event was the Cynthia Rowley and Olaf Breuning collaboration. Rowley designed plain denim shirts, trousers and dresses which were then dressed on a model who was walked into a plastic lined box and splashed with paint. The dresses were then photographed, and removed to dry.
This was definitely more fine art installation but resulted in a whole one off fashion collection. (Breuning really liked Duck’s bleach splattered vest he wore to the show)
Over all the show seemed to be a success, but we would have liked to see a few more designers and definitely some locally based designers and artists.
