Slow Styles in a Fast Styled World
February 9th - March 9th
Rear Storefront is pleased to announce the February 9th opening of Slow Styles in a Fast Styled World, an art exhibition from hairdresser and artist Brittany Mroczek.
The work examines the architectural relationship between fashion and the body, as well as the textural relationship between hair and fiber. The clothing and textiles featured in the exhibition, all photographed by Rob Kulisek and hung on the gallery walls, ask the viewer to examine what it means to remove clothing from the confines of the fashion industry and view it in a quieter, recontextualized space.
Mroczek has created an installation in which fashion, hair styling, textiles, and drawing merge together. As a component of Slow Styles in a Fast Styled World, she will be booking haircut appointments and taking orders for F/W17 custom made cashmere garments.
