Curator Tour: "Fast Fashion/Slow Art"

On View at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design, Fast Fashion/Slow Art explores issues of waste and consumerism through eleven films and video installations by emerging and established artists. These film installations invite a broad-ranging conversation about the production and distribution of clothing and textiles in today’s industrialized and globally interconnected world. Join us for a tour led by co-curators Bibiana Obler and Phyllis Rosenzweig.

Bibiana Obler is associate professor of art history at the George Washington University. Her book Intimate Collaborations: Kandinsky and Münter, Arp and Taeuber (2014) investigates the role of artist couples in the emergence of abstract art. She is working on a second book, Anti-Craft, exploring the relations between craft and art in the late twentieth century.

Phyllis Rosenzweig is curator emerita at the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. While at the Hirshhorn, she organized many exhibitions of contemporary artists including Byron Klm, Sherri Levine, Glenn Llgon, and Kiki Smith. More recently, Rosenzweig curated exhibitions at G Fine Art and American University Art Museum in Washington, D.C., as well as BronxArtSpace in New York City.
