Summer Study in New York
The Art of Fashion
While recent debates over "luxury" have dominated the discussion of art and fashion, this course looks at the historical, geopolitical, and practical aspects of these inter-related fields. Through a combination of lectures and visits to museums, fashion ateliers, and artist's studios, the course will reference historical examples from Modernist movements including the Bauhaus, to postmodern examples such as Pop and Op Art. Students will look at the current trend of collaborations between artists and major labels (such as Richard Prince and Takashi Murakami for Louis Vuitton and Zaha Hadid for Chanel), as well as designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford making works of art.
