Customization has always been at the heart of couture: the hand-beaded, hand-stitched, one-of-a-kind gown as a unique garment with a specific connection to its wearer. In the exhibition Coded_Couture, on view at Tufts University Art Gallery, until May 21, 2017 curators Ginger Duggan and Judy Fox propose a new definition of couture, in which coding supplants handwork as a means to extreme customization of garments. Judy will introduce the work in the exhibition in this illustrated presentation.
When: Wednesday, April 5th, 7:30pm
Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St., Jamaica Plain, MA (next to the Green Street Station)
Presenter: Judy Fox
