Iroquois Indian Museum, 324 Caverns Road, Howes Cave, NY
Featured exhibition showcases constructions by Iroquois/Haudenosaunee artists and/or designers who employ fabric, leather, fur, plastic, and other materials to push the boundaries of style and fashion far beyond cultural tradition and stereotype to explore the capacity of apparel to embody personal and/or political identity and reflect on Native experience. We have assembled a broad and illustrative collection of Indigenous couture, street wear, wearable art, and accessories by both emerging and established designers. Themes identified as central to these constructions include: cultural change and the impacts of colonization, assertive reclamation of pan-Indian elements such as fringe, fur and feathers, Indigenous sovereignty, revitalization and reinterpretation of traditional stories and symbols. Appropriation and cultural property issues are also addressed.
