FABRICATIONS is an exhibition, which uses articles of fashion and domesticity as a metaphor for women’s experiences. The work included is meant to challenge the viewer to question the role of women and distinctions between objects of art, fashion and domesticity. Fashion establishes standards of behavior and dress for women through advertising, television, and other popular media.
Similarly, everyday household items are identified to belong in the traditional female sphere. In this exhibition four different artists explore these ideas by presenting works of art that ” redress” what is identified as feminine or belonging into the female sphere and confront identities that we expect women to uphold.
