Metamorphosis: Clothing & Identity
January 29, 2014 – April 27, 2014

San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles

sjtm_metamorphosisMetamorphosis: Clothing & Identity is a retrospective of the San Francisco Bay Area Art-to-Wear movement and traces the evolution of the rich history and legacy of this genre from its inception in the 1960s to the current group of second generation designers that are creating their own one-of-a-kind, handmade, artful garments. The exhibition will also present a “metamorphosis” of clothes that transcends functional attire and becomes sculptural manifestations of symbolic ideas that challenge our notion of clothing and identity.
