PRESS RELEASE FOR FINNISH CURATION 7.12.2017
The Curatorial committee is proud to announce its second major exhibition entitled INNOVATIVE COSTUME of the 21st CENTURY: THE NEXT GENERATION. This exhibit was conceived through the collaboration between A.A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum, OISTAT and USITT. The world premiere will be held at the State Historical Museum in Moscow, Russia June-August 2019.
This exhibition will feature innovative work of young professionals, students, costume and fashion designers, as well as interpreters and costume makers from 58 nations worldwide, who started their career between 2000 and 2018. Costume renderings, collages, photographs, computer generated designs, videos, and three-dimensional costumes created by designers for cinema, opera, ballet, theater, devised work, performance and installation art, wearable art and innovative fashion will be showcased.
INNOVATIVE COSTUME is an international endeavor to identify how media, technology, and shifting national identities form us afresh and affect our perception and practice of theatre, breaking previously established boundaries and principles.
We intend to document the new artistic vocabulary originated by the next generation of the emerging artists and create a platform for a dialogue on the topical issues in the field of modern design and technology.
