Fashion Institute of Technology faculty member Sass Brown presents her new book, Eco Fashion, a comprehensive look at the environmentally conscious designers who are changing the fashion industry.

Bye Bye Kitty!!! exhibition preview

Joe Earle
Tuesday, November 16, 6-8 pm
Katie Murphy Amphitheatre
Fred P. Pomerantz Art and Design Center, first floor

Joe Earle, director of the Japan Society Gallery, will preview the Japan Society’s spring 2011 exhibition, Bye Bye Kitty!!!: Between Heaven and Hell in Contemporary Japanese Art. This exhibition will move beyond semi-ironic narratives of cuteness and powerlessness to find traditional viewpoints melded with perceptions of the present in radically creative, unsettling combinations. Earle will introduce paintings, objects, photographs, installations, and video by the artists included in the show.

All Fashion Culture programs are free, but reservations are required as space is limited.
