Items: Is Fashion Modern?
The Museum of Modern Art
From October 1, 2017 to January 28, 2018

 

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past – and sometimes the future – of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries – and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi’s 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh.

Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques – extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use.

Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology.
