Opening Reception: Fashioning the Intangible: The Conceptual Clothing of Ying Gao

Wednesday May 7 from 6:30 - 8 pm

Please join us for the Opening Reception of Fashioning the Intangible: The Conceptual Clothing of Ying Gao.

Renee Baert, curator, will be in attendance.

Fashion designer Ying Gao’s clothing appears to be made of air and light. Bridging art, science and technology, she explores the interplay between matter and imagination to produce ethereal responses to light, sound and the environment. In this exhibition, Gao's interactive prototypes embedded with electronic and digital systems are shown alongside innovative multifunctional designs that integrate new materials. Currently residing in Montreal and Geneva, Ying Gao was recently appointed Head of the Design Mode, Bijou et Accessoires section of the Haute école d'art et de design, Switzerland.

Organized and circulated by Cargo Curatorial Group.
