The University of North Texas’ Texas Fashion Collection is part of the exhibition “On Bodies: Highlights from The Goss-Michael Foundation and the UNT Texas Fashion Collection,” that forms a link between high fashion and British art.
The exhibition includes a dozen pieces of contemporary British art from the Goss-Michael Foundation and 10 ensembles from the UNT Texas Fashion Collection. The Goss-Michael Foundation, co-founded by UNT alumnus Kenny Goss, is one of the leading contemporary British art collections in the United States.
Noted British artists Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst, among others, are featured alongside contemporary high fashion by Jean Paul Gaultier, Todd Oldham, John Galliano and other fashion designers. In addition to the exhibition, artist and stylist Ruben Burgess Jr., who creates under the name Sartorialnolift, has been commissioned to interpret the show’s thematic temper through drawing, paint and collage. The exhibition highlights bodies in art and fashion, while inviting patrons to consider their relationship with their own bodies.
It will run through Feb. 2 (Friday), 2018 at the Goss-Michael Foundation.
