Desert Dweller

Exhibition Website

Oct 21 2017 - Jan 21 2018

Desert Dweller, guest-curated by Paula Taylor and organized by the Tucson Museum of Art, examines historical and contemporary Southern Arizona retailers and designers as the curators and innovators of style. The exhibition explores the intersection between a fierce regional identity and modern fashion trends from the 1940s to today. It encapsulates the independent spirit and fashion nuances that accompany a strong sense of place, integrating elements of street style, high fashion, and cowboy, Native American, and Mexican cultures into global fashion trends.
