Fashion Drive: Extreme Clothing in the Visual Arts
(1000 items available)
How have artists reacted to such creations as slashed clothing, codpieces, the crinoline or the dinner jacket? Fashion is an economic index as well as a seismograph of social sensitivities—an expression of longing and an instrument for mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. In the modern age of global homogenisation through "fast fashion", this book provides an overview of clothing in art and subversive moments in fashion through painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and film.
