Adapt, adopt, subvert, iterate. The relationship between function and fashion is rarely direct -- or even correlative. When a wearable object's original intent evolves, shifts or otherwise becomes altered, it can splinter into multiple identities. Featuring clothing, accessories, and mixed media, Re[intent]ion: Adaptation + Subversion of the Wearable examines eight objects and the implications of their re[intent]ion.
The fourth annual exhibition curated by students in the Visual Culture: Costume Studies graduate program at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Re[intent]ion'scurators are: Torrey Acri, Anna Burckhardt, Kyla Gordon, Minji Kim, Stephanie Kramer, Rosa Leon Lumagbas, Felicity Pitt, and Patricia Way.
