Fashion as Social Energy is an exhibition about Art and Fashion together, as forms of social energy, able to act as catalysts for change encompassing desire, anxiety, needs, obsessions and critical angles on the present.
The exhibition presents the work of fourteen international artists who are particularly sensitive to contemporary transformations in society: from Luigi Coppola and Marzia Migliora to Maria Papadimitriou and Michelangelo Pistoletto among others.
In these works clothing does not merely represent the possibilities of individual and social identification but stimulates reflections on many current issues such as: mobility and migration, the transience of beauty, the fragmentation of communities and relations between individuals and their working conditions in a globalized world.
When interpreted by artists, fashion reveals a world of untold stories, between ethics and aesthetics, activates for new creative and social energy, of forces able to unhinge habits, undermining conventions and generating new visions and possibilities.
Fashion as Social Energy will run until the 30th of August of 2015 at Palazzo Morando in Milan Italy.
