Many things to report that have been happening in the Fashion School…. but one that I would like to announce that is coming up is:
BEYOND FASHION: FIBER AND FASHION ART BY VINCENT QUEVEDO
March 4, 2011 – February 12, 2012
This show will be in the KSU Museum Higbee Gallery
One of the pieces that will be on display is “DMZ,” which Vince and I created collaboratively for the Fashion Art Biennale in Seoul, South Korea.
Here is an excerpt from Vince about the upcoming exhibition:
“Our physical and emotional states are layers upon layers of independent planes stacked but separated in opaque and sometimes translucent elements that make up who we are. These layers build character that defines the uniqueness of an individual. Sometimes, these layers build a visual facade concealing internal elements. My work is about exposing the internal elements and revealing the parts that make the whole. My body of work is a unique blend of ideas and materials reflecting contemporary culture and my translations of it relative to the attitudes and reactions connected to emotions.
“Beyond Fashion: Fiber and Fashion Art by Vincent Quevedo” are pieces from my past collections that are not an attempt to persuade viewers to accept my personal ideologies, but to recognize and distinguish the power of clothing relative to beauty, intrigue, intimacy and complexity. Although wearable, their intent includes a theatrical presence demanding a certain level of attention beyond that of ordinary clothing or art. This compilation also examines the potential of clothing as a sculptural entity dependent on visual cues in space. This is not to say these pieces have no meaning, indeed they do, but the literal or abstract presentation I leave for the viewer to define.”
