Redress: Upcycled Style by Nancy Judd

Exhibition Website

Jul 28 2017 - Oct 22 2017

Can a beautifully made garment also carry an environmental message? Artist Nancy Judd thinks so!

Like it or not, we are a wasteful society. We buy, we consume, we rip our shirt and throw it away. Most of our everyday purchases have disposable packaging, our mailboxes are jammed with junk advertising campaigns, our belongings wear out and we simply buy another. Trash is just a part of our throw-away culture.

At first glance her creations are stunning and dramatic, appearing as fine couture and refined garments. A closer look takes us deeper into her message. A glamorous, shimmering evening gown is made from crushed glass and salvaged upholstery fabric.
