An American Style: Global Sources for New York Textile and Fashion Design
09/27/13 – 2/02/14 – New York
“An American Style: Global Sources for New York Textile and Fashion Design, 1915–1928 examines the efforts of the American Museum of Natural History to educate and inspire New York textile and fashion designers during and after World War I.
This exhibition is especially significant this year, as New York celebrates the centennial of the 1913 Armory Show—the seminal exhibition trumpeting the formal, non-representational mode of rendering form that marked the emergence of modern art in America. And indeed, many of the designers who participated in the AMNH’s activities worked in Greenwich Village, the thriving artistic and cultural epicenter of the avant-garde. The embrace by these designers of a more graphic and less representational aesthetic would be a harbinger of American design in the decades that followed.”
