Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger
Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger
Feb 7, 2015-May 17, 2015
213/621-1745 or education@moca.org

Since 1999, when he premiered his first collection of clothes in Paris, Bernhard Willhelm has been "moving in-between chaos and diversity." He and his team, headed by long-term collaborator Jutta Kraus, recently decamped from their Parisian atelier and relocated to Los Angeles. This site-specific work at MOCA's PDC gallery functions as a sculptural installation with a fashion sensibility and includes video, photography, and displays of ephemera and objects curated by Willhelm. Described by Willhelm as a meditation on the future of commerce and a "thinking-forward exhibition," he sees this installation as his response to the uniformity of fashion in the 21st century and a forecast of the fashion experience in the 22nd century.

Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger is organized by Emma Reeves, Project Coordinator.
