Four Perspectives On Fashion Curation
1914 Now. Four perspectives on fashion curation is a project born out of the collaboration between fashion editors and filmmakers.
Walter Van Beirendonck, Amy de la Haye and Judith Clark Kaat Debo were invited by curator Alison Moloney (International Exhibitions Programme, London College of Fashion) to reflect on the theme apparel since 1914.
The project brings to light many viewpoints around fashion and fashion curation where each curator reveals his own personal approach to discipline.
A film, via a tea dress, explores the threshold of modernity, while another investigates contexts, such as furniture and props from Balla's Futurist Manifesto.
The curators have collaborated with directors Bart Hess, James Norton, Katerina Athanasopoulou and Marie Schuller.
Four perspectives on fashion curation draws inspiration from the brief Absorbing Modernity from1914 to 2014, proposed by Rem Koolhaas at the national pavilions in the Giardini della Biennale of Architecture.
The films are accompanied by a publication, available on UAL e-store, composed of essays by the curators and historians of architecture as well as an exploration by professionals and critics as far as the encounter and clash of modern times in fashion and in other disciplines.
The film is launch today, November 6th, 2014 at SHOWstudio and was accompanied by the installation of SPAZIO PUNCH and an International tour festival consisting of fashion films, installations in art galleries and events, including the RIBA scheduled for 9th of December, 2014.
