Skin + Bones: MOCA

Skin + Bones: MOCA

Los Angeles, CA

The design of an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles for ‘Skin & Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture,’ the first major museum exhibition devoted to the extensive and telling similarities between contemporary architecture and fashion.

From the Museum’s press release: Skin + Bones explores the parallels between the “skin” – or exterior surface – and the “bones” – or structural framework – of both clothing and buildings of the past twenty-five years. Forty-five leading fashion designers and architects were represented by a wide range of more than 300 objects: from stunning one-of-a-kind haute couture gowns to intricate architectural models and special full-scale installations.

The entire building at MOCA Grand Avenue was transformed with a dynamic installation by New York-based architects Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown.
