2:00 PM – IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA—the Artistry of American Fashion Design
Presented by: Steven Maklansky/Director, Boca Raton Museum of Art
The art of fashion has been celebrated by artists and designers for centuries. Apparel found in Egyptian tombs, for example, was embellished with sophisticated weaving and intricate decoration. Fashion and style have continued to mature and explore levels of expression that have made contemporary designers the "art stars" of the fashion world. As early as Dali and Mondrian, surrealists and performance artists, art and fashion always have gone hand in hand. The recent exhibition of the late Alexander McQueen at the Met gave indisputable proof that fashion has reached a high level of fine art. Prominent artists such as Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami and Tracey Emin have drawn an invisible line between art and fashion. This lecture provides a fascinating perspective on some of the leading American designers such as Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang, among others, whose remarkable work and craftsmanship currently are on view at the Boca Raton Museum of Art in collaboration with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
BIO: Steven V. Maklansky is the Director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Before taking this position in 2011, he was the Executive Director of the Brevard Art Museum, the former Director of Curatorial Services at the Louisiana State Museum and the Assistant Director for Art and Curator of Photographs at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
