"Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art centers on contemporary artists' explorations of how dress both expresses and shapes who we are-our personal, cultural, and political identities-and it is my hope that their work will help stimulate discussion and foster understanding during these troubled times. As the quintessential "outside the box" thinkers, artists have always been on the front lines of driving and processing social change; there is a reason cutting-edge art has long been referred to by a military term, "avant-garde." As society rebuilds, artists' insights about our world and how we inhabit it are more necessary than ever"-- Provided by publisher.
