Reshaping Contour

Exhibition Curation Project, 2018

Yi-Chin Lee, Yixiao Fu

Fashion is an imaginary that extends the body. It shows how people today perceive the possible future appearance of the body, and how that relates to our identity. Metropolis opens up the designer’s desire to depict the future body. Alexander McQueen, Iris Van Herpen, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Thierry Mugler are pioneers who push the boundary toward the unknown. Artificial intelligence offers various perspectives for reshaping the body through fashion. CUTECIRCUIT, IBM Watson, Project Muze, Sophia, and Viktoria Modesta demonstrate the mutual influence between fashion and technology. Presenting such trends, this exhibition documents changes, while at the same time reflecting on identity in this new era.
