This fall, the Philadelphia Museum of Artpresents Off the Wall: American Art to Wear, (November 10, 2019 – May 17, 2020) a major exhibition that highlights a distinctive American art movement that emerged in the late 1960s and flourished during the following decades. It examines a generation of pioneering artists who used body-related forms to express a personal vision and frames their work in relation to the cultural, historical and social concerns of their time. Focusing on iconic works made during the three decades between 1967 and 1997, the exhibition features over 130 one-of-a-kind works by more than sixty artists. Comprised primarily of selections from a promised gift of Julie Schafler Dale, it will also include works from the museum’s collection and loans from private collections. Off the Wall: American Art to Wear is accompanied by a new publication of the same title, co-published by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Yale University Press.
Rub, the George D. Widener Director and CEO, said: “This
exhibition will introduce to our visitors an exceptionally creative
and adventurous aspect of American art which took the body as a
vehicle for its expression. We are not only deeply grateful to Julie
Dale for her extraordinary gifts and support of the museum but also
see this as an opportunity to acknowledge the dynamic role she played
in nurturing the growth and development of this movement.”
champions of Art to Wear during the early years were a
few forward-thinking museums, among them New York’s Museum of
Contemporary Crafts (Museum of Art and Design), collectors, and
galleries such as Sandra Sakata’s Obiko, founded in
1972 in San Francisco, and Julie Schafler Dale’s Julie:
Artisans Gallery, which opened the following year on Madison
Avenue in New York. For over 40 years, Dale’s gallery was a premier
destination for presenting one-of-a-kind wearable works by American
artists. Through her gallery installations and rotating window
displays, she gave visibility to the Art to Wear movement. In 1986,
she brought further recognition to the art form by publishing the
seminal book Art to Wear—from which the title of this
exhibition is taken—which provided in-depth profiles of artists
alongside photographs by Brazilian fashion photographer Otta
Stupakoff. Dale’s gallery closed in 2013.
the Wall is arranged in nine sections; the titles of some are
derived from popular music of the ‘60s and ‘70s to suggest the
wide-ranging concerns of the artists. The introductory section, The
Times They Are A Changin’ (Bob Dylan, 1964), contains works by
Lenore Tawney, Dorian Zachai, Claire Zeisler, Ed Rossbach, and
Debra Rapoport to illustrate how textile artists in the late
‘50s and ‘60s liberated tapestry weaving from the wall, adapting
it to three-dimensional sculptural forms inspired by pre-Columbian
1969, a group of five students at Pratt Institute studying
painting, sculpture, industrial design, multimedia, and graphic
design taught each other how to crochet, leading to remarkable
outcomes. Janet Lipkin, Jean Cacicedo, Marika Contompasis, Sharron
Hedges, and Dina Knapp all created clothing-related forms
that they would describe as wearable sculpture, thus establishing a
cornerstone of the Art to Wear movement. A highlight in this
section is a wool crochet and knit Samurai Top, 1972, by
Sharron Hedges, modeled by the young Julie Dale for the book
Creative Crochet, authored by two of the artist’s friends,
Nicki Hitz Edson and Arlene Stimmel.
next section, Good Vibrations (Beach Boys, 1966), traces the
migration of many of these young artists from the East Coast to the
West Coast where they joined California’s vibrant artistic
community and connected with Sandra Sakata’s Obiko. A pair
of colorful denim hand-embroidered mini shorts by Anna VA Polesny
embroidered while traveling conveys this new youthful spirit.
Pacific Rim influences are evident in the Japanese kimono form as a
blank canvas offering infinite possibilities for pattern and design.
Katherine Westpahl’s indigo blue resist-dyed cotton work, A
Fantasy Meeting of Santa Claus with Big Julie and Tyrone at
McDonald’s, 1978, and Janet Lipkin’s Mexico at
Midday, a coat made in 1988 are exceptional examples. A range of
counter-culture influences, evoking ceremony and spirituality,
pervade this section.
Together (The Beatles, 1969) responds to the popular use of
assemblage in art-making, especially the use of nontraditional
materials. It also looks at the art of performance, reflected in Ben
Compton and Marian Clayden’s Nocturnal Moth, 1974,
inspired by Federico Fellini’s film La Dolce Vita
(1960). “Mother Earth,” a nod to the publication Mother
Earth News Magazine, looks to nature and environmental concerns
while This Land is Your Land (Woodie Guthrie, 1940) explores
iconic American imagery including reference to the American West and
Native American cultures. Examples in this section include Joan
Ann Jablow’s Big Bird cape, 1977, made entirely of
recycled bird feathers, and Joan Steiner’s Manhattan
Collar, 1979, which reimagines New York’s skyline in miniature.
Worlds explores fantasy and science fiction, two genres that
offered young people an escape from the period’s cultural and
political upheavals. Noteworthy here are works by Jean Cacicedo
and Nina Huryn, both of whom riff on one of the most widely
read English language books at the time, J.R.R. Tolkien’s
trilogy Lord of the Rings (1965). Cacicedo responded with a
portrait of Treebeard, 1973, a Tolkien character, while Huryn
created her own fantasy world in Tree Outfit, with its flowing pants,
loose shirt and leather sleeveless jacket containing forest and
folklore imagery, a work made especially for Julie: Artisans
Gallery in 1976. Other artists turned to dreams, such as Susanna
Lewis, who created Moth Cape, 1979, in response to a
nightmare that she had of a giant moth enveloping her body.
section called I Am Woman (Helen Reddy, 1971) underscores the
ways in which artists invoked feminism directly and indirectly in Art
to Wear. Janet Lipkin, for example, invested her works
with symbols of freedom while searching for new directions in her
life, as seen in Bird Coat, 1972, Flamingo, 1982, and
Transforming Woman, 1992. Other works like Combat Vest,
1985, by Sheila Perez, feature plastic toy soldiers as
protective armor for the chest area, while Nicki Hitz Edson’s
Medusa Mask, 1975, is a wild expression of fraught emotions
surrounding the breakup of her marriage.
My World (Chicago, 1970) reflects the buoyant rainbow color
spectrum that was ubiquitous during this era. Recently published
works on color theory by Johannes Itten and Josef Albers
provided a cornerstone of the new art education. For Linda
Mendelson, color, typography, and text became inseparable. She
adapted Albers’s ideas relating to after-images in Big Red,
and linked color progression with lines from a poem titled Coat by
William Butler Yeats from which she drew inspiration. Other
artists such as Tim Harding created an effect similar to
impressionist brush strokes by slashing and fraying dyed fabrics, as
seen in his colorful coat Garden: Field of Flowers, 1991.
final section Everybody’s Talkin’ (Harry Nilsson, 1969)
explores the use of text in Art to Wear. JoEllen Trilling
engages in visual word play using common prepositions on a
jacket, while Jean Cacicedo channels her grief over her
father’s death using words taken from the bible that celebrated his
life in My Father’s House, 1994.
Blum, The Jack M. and Annette Y. Friedland Senior Curator of Costumes
and Textiles, who organized the exhibition, said: “We are
looking back at this period with a fresh lens through which to
consider a uniquely American art form that continues to have a
worldwide influence. With roots and connections in fine arts, fiber
art, craft, performance and fashion, there are so many important
artists to appreciate. For this reason I am delighted by the
opportunity to cast a light on such extraordinary talents, including
so many adventurous women who deserve much greater recognition.”

Gap Pays Homage To The Past And Celebrates Emerging Talent With Rumer Willis, Coco Gordon, Evan Ross, Chelsea Tyler, Lizzy Jagger, TJ Mizell and Naomi Campbell
Gap announces the launch of a limited-edition collection – the ’90’s Archive Re-Issue – for men and women featuring iconic styles from the ’90’s including the Bodysuit, Reverse Fit and Easy Fit Denim, Pleated Khakis and the timeless Pocket Tee, available online and in select stores globally starting February 7.
The design team came up with the idea for the collection after multiple visits to Gap’s on-site archives studio in New York where the company houses key fashions from all of the brands spanning the course of the company’s 46-year history. After pouring through racks and racks of some of the brand’s most beloved styles, the team realized that so many key ’90’s fashions are not only relevant today, but many of these timeless pieces are so uniquely Gap.
To launch the collection, Gap collaborated with director Kevin Calero to create ‘Generation Gap,’ a film that is the ultimate contemporary homage to the iconic Gap ads of the ’90’s with references to “Mellow Yellow,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “Just Can’t Get Enough” and updated with a modern twist. ‘Generation Gap‘ features a roll call of emerging talent cast from the offspring of stars of the iconic Gap ’90s ads with a special cameo from the timeless icon and Gap alumni Naomi Campbell wearing the iconic pocket tee that she modeled in 1992 for her Steven Meisel shoot. Set to an a capella version of the 1992 Billboard music #1 hit ‘All 4 Love‘ by Color me Badd, ‘Generation Gap‘ is a nod to the past and a celebration of the next generation as they reimagine the iconic Gap looks in their own unique style.
Gap Launches Limited-Edition ’90’s Archive Re-Issue Collection with ‘Generation Gap’ Film
This reissue is a true homage to some of their customers’ favorite ’90s trends. In fact, the design team was so committed to the authenticity of the project, that the pieces will feature the exact same tags, trims, hardware and denim washes that some may still have in their drawers.
“We were determined to replicate the same color and washes of the original denim pieces from the ’90s using our current fabrics, some innovative wash techniques, and a sustainable process. We sent our manufacturing partners photos, swatches, and multiple samples to make sure we got everything exactly right,” said Natalie Nelson, Wash Manager of Gap’s denim design.Continue reading →
