A collection of 12 garments by 13 artists from London, Hong Kong, Chicago, Kansas City, Portland and Seattle.

Each garment challenges its traditional function of merely “clothing’ its wearer. These garments create an interface between the unique stories of their wearers, and the explicit expressions of their makers. Together, they are a small inventory of how garments can represent our individual and collective bodies, identities, politics, histories and futures.  Isolated in the gallery context, these garments raise  questions about whose bodies wear them, whose bodies created them, and the stories that are woven within the fibers.
