Taller: Objet-Vtement: When Architecture Meets Clothing


July 7, 2010
by Canadian Architect

Professor Maryla Sobek of the Université du Québec à Montréal’s (UQAM) École de design and the École supérieure de mode de Montréal (ESMM, UQAM), presents this exhibition, which runs from September 9 to October 2, 2010 at the Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve in Montreal.

 

Located at the crossroads of two disciplines, fashion design and architecture, this exhibition consists of five “objets-vêtements” designed in the manner of an architectural drawing. Inspired by Dogon architecture, these “objets-vêtements” are the result in part of field research carried out by the artist in 2009 in Mali, whose architecture is seen as a perfect example of the rationality of vernacular architecture. This exhibition is being curated by the art historian Serge Allaire, an expert in the history of fashion photography and part-time instructor in the art history department at UQAM.
