Frau Fiber supports – Garment Work

MCS Exhibiti:  UBS 12 x 12: Anne Elizabeth Moore

As part of the monthly UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work series at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago-based artist Anne Elizabeth Moore leads Garment Work, a durational collective performance project in which the artist and visitors deconstruct one of America’s most iconic fashion elements: denim jeans.

The exhibit runs through August 28, and twice a week, Moore turns the gallery space into a performance/workshop/discussion to create a connection between Cambodia’s garment manufacturing industry where the jeans are made to Michigan Avenue, where the jeans are sold.

During the installation, Moore joins with visitors to physically take the jeans apart by hand and presents research about the origins of the jeans and the experiences of their makers and sellers. Her exhibition reflects on the international garment trade and women’s issues in developing nations.
