“Cycle & Pattern,” an exhibition featuring four dioramas based on multiple framings and perspectives, is on view at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles, California. The show runs through August 19.
The show highlights the playful interaction between celestial elegance and the whimsy mortal and material world. “Through the mentorship of Jose Fernandez of Ironhead Studio and costume designer Louise Mingenbach, who are each responsible for the costume design seen in many major motion pictures, including the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the garments on display are original works by senior fashion design students at Otis College of Art and Design,” the museum says.
Each work is a singular design yet simultaneously presented as a group encouraging collective engagement. “The gowns and designs are inspired by the constellations of the horoscope, grouped accordingly by their respective elements, Earth, Wind, Fire, and Air,” the museum writes. “These unique pieces first debuted at the 2018 Annual Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show at Otis College, which showcases work from juniors and seniors in the Fashion Design department.”
The exhibition is curated by A+D Museum under the direction of Executive Director and Chief Curator Anthony Morey.
The show is a collaboration between A+D and Otis College of Art and Design. According to the museum, “It is an opportunity for these institutions to demonstrate a shared commitment to providing local artists and designers with a space to experiment, create, and express. This alliance is an embrace of the interactions between different modes of design and their multitudes of expressions.”
A+D Architecture and Design Museum was established in January 2001 and is the only museum in the US to exclusively and continuously host architecture and design exhibitions, symposia, multi-disciplinary projects, educational, and community programs.
“Cycle & Pattern” runs through August 19, 2018, at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum, 900 E 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90013, USA.
