An exhibition of new work by Josiah McElheny, his third with the gallery. If the human body has scarcely changed since we started walking upright, the history of fashion shows that we have always sought new and extraordinary ways to transform it. Through exhibitions and performances such as 'An Historical Anecdote About Fashion' (1999) and 'The Metal Party' (2001), McElheny has explored how the constantly shifting forms of fashion can often reveal the core beliefs and assumptions of any given era. With 'Interactions of the Abstract Body' McElheny pushes these ideas further, creating a large and varied body of work that looks at how fashion and modernism have intersected and influenced each other, especially through the common language of the body.
