  • Social Fabrics Event/Exhibition

    Arts & Culture, Fashion Design




    WHAT: Social Fabrics: Art + Media + Interconnectivity is an event-style exhibition sponsored by the LEONARDO EDUCATION FORUM and the UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS, and co-sponsored by the COLLEGE OF ART + DESIGN, LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY, in association with the Laboratory for Creative Arts & Technologies and the Office of Sponsored Programs, LSU, and hosted by the 2008 ANNUAL MEETING OF THE COLLEGE ART ASSOCIATION.

    Social Fabrics will explore artists' creative deployment of mobile, socially interconnective media as wearable attire. Social Fabrics will emphasize convergences between individual expression and statement making, on the one hand, and the phenomenology of "network society" on the other. Technological garments or accessories will be presented as will works that comment on, or critique, our digital media-infused and fashion driven lifestyles. Works will be presented by artists from all over the United States and Canada and countries abroad including Great Britain and Australia.
