Event Details

On View December 6, 2019 – January 12, 2020

Opening Reception: Friday, December 6th from 5:00 – 8:00pm 

We Are What We Wear presents a limited survey of contemporary artists across the United States working with clothing as a form of artistic medium. Textiles, whether created or repurposed, hold physical, historical, and emotional weight. 

The exhibition will center around the 2018 Boedecker Path to Excellence Grant awardee, The Pavlova Project. Created by local Boulder artist Peggy Turchette, this unique exhibition will walk viewers through the life and career of world-renowned ballerina Anna Pavlova. Through the painstaking recreation of Pavlova’s career-defining costumes and couture, Turchette will guide viewers through a biographical narrative of Pavlova’s life while providing personal insight into the extraordinary art of one of the 20th century’s most inspiring women. 

Other featured exhibits will include:  Imminent Peril – Queer Collection by South-Carolina based artist Erika Diamond, How to Dismantle the Patriarchy by New York-based artists Winnie van der Rijn and Noah Pica, and works by Jim Arendt, a North Carolina-based artist.  

 We Are What We Wear opens on December 6th at 5:00 pm. At 6:00 pm a brief introduction and discussion of the works on view will be made. The reception is an opportunity to meet and mingle with the artists and curator. Live music, plus drinks and snacks available for purchase. All receptions are free and open to the public.
