July 7 - 22, 2018
Artist Reception: Sunday, July 15 from 1 - 4pm
Katrin Schnabl curates the 2017-18 Fashion Residency at the Evanston Art Center with SHAPE OF NOW, a multi-disciplinary project focused on illuminating the creative process behind the work of multi-disciplinary fashion designers/artists Abigail Glaum Lathbury, Alex Ulichny, Ayrun Dismuke of Misanthrope, Kristin Mariani, a collective composed of Sky Cubacub, Compton Quashie and Jake Vogds, and a collaboration with Anne Guitteau and Katrin Schnabl.
A weeklong opening exhibition in October 2017 introduced the designers, who were subsequently invited to individually take over and work in the 2nd floor studio space for up to four weeks throughout the 2017-18 Season. This took form of research, sampling, styling, working with collaborators and/or documenting a phase of their unique design processes. During this time, the designers elected to host classes, workshops, lectures, topical panel conversations, happenings or presentations as part of their residency. This final exhibition will feature the work resulting from their residency.
