IMMINENT MODE: US
November 3, 2022 – January 5, 2023
IMMINENT MODE: Us is a deeper examination of where we’ve come from, why our ancestors immigrated to this land, and how our cultural differences can find harmony. Each team will explore and celebrate their unique cultural heritages and express that through their work. A group of teams comprised of a Garment Designer and Fine Artist, are paired to collaborate and create work for an exhibition featuring a piece of wearable art and a large-scale installation based on a theme. Additionally, a complementary secondary and tertiary garment will be walked in a fashion show at the Opening Gala. IMMINENT MODE is curated by Jordan Christianson, Adé A Cônnére, and Anouk Rawkson.
