MICHAEL NGO: WEARABLE ART EXHIBITION

Art Museum of the University of Memphis (AMUM) / 3750 Norriswood Ave. April 1 - September 30th

Wearable Art exists as an avenue for pure artistic expression within the world of fashion design.

A work of Wearable Art is a one-of-a-kind design that expresses an aesthetic originating entirely from the artist themselves. It takes art off the wall and brings it to life through display on the human body. Wearable art moves beyond mainstream fashion, employing diverse artistic techniques to create unconventional, avant-garde, bespoke creations. Wearable Art firmly rejects the commercially-driven notion that all fashion must be designed for mass production. These wearable works of art exist at the intersection of fashion, craftsmanship, and art.
