Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2023: DRESS
UNIFORM, ARMOR, IDENTITY. EXPRESS, PROVOKE, CONFORM.
How do you know what people do for a living? How recently have they come to this country? Are they tourists? We regard each other and make judgments about gender, class, work, lifestyle, social group, and cultural heritage based on appearance.
Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2023: DRESS, scheduled for October 13-15, 2023 and curated by Brooklyn-based artist Gretchen Vitamvas, invites artists who are using dress as a medium and interested in using 14th Street as a runway to present, walk, and pose, to apply for its eighteenth annual outdoor public visual and performance art festival taking place along 14th Street in Manhattan. Works may take the form of garments, textile, fashion design, costume, performance, sculpture and installation.
