THE EVENTS

COMING UP 12/06/22

 

Interlaced is a two-person exhibition featuring Washington D.C. based artists Mohammed Obaid and Yazan Aboushi. The works on display explore the deep connections and shared interest of the artists with their Arab legacy and history. Through their distinct process, Obaid and Aboushi provide a contemporary view of the Arab experience, raising questions about the self in relation to nature, heritage, justice, and cross-culturalism.

The maze created by the arabesque in the work of Obaid evokes the interlacing branches of the ancestral olive trees featured in the photography of Aboushi. Together this repeated chain of interlaced geometrical and vegetal shapes creates a union between the works and the two artists and speaks to the complexity of identity formation.

Interlaced: Mohammed Obeid & Yazan Aboushi is organized for the Slow Down Market.

Date: December 6th, 2022

Time: 6-8pm

Location: 1710 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington DC 20009

RSVP HERE.

INTERMISSION 08/25/22

Join us at the museum for the final screening in our Fashion on Film x Intermission summer series focused on sustainable fashion.

“The Next Black” considers how new technologies, innovations and a growing demand for sustainability will alter the fashion system. The documentary brings together designers, material engineers and industry leaders to question how we may produce, care for and discard (or not discard) clothes in the future. Featuring labels such as Patagonia, Adidas, Biocouture and Studio XO, the interviewees question the necessity of mass production of clothing and introduce technology and “smart textiles” that may help us consume less while feeling more fulfilled in our purchases.

(House of Radon in collaboration with AEG, 2014, 47 minutes.)

This program will take place in person at the museum. Space is limited, so please register online to reserve your spot.

INTERMISSION 07/28/22

Join us for the second film in our Fashion on Film x Intermission summer series, “Made in Bangladesh." The film will be followed by a discussion with Rebecca Ballard and Allie Gardner from The Fashion Connection.

Based on the life of Daliya Akter, the film follows a garment worker who escaped child marriage and went on to lead a trade union fighting for workers' rights in the Bangladesh capital, Dhaka. Her story depicts the struggles and successes of female ready-made garment workers and explores how the garment industry of Bangladesh has helped to empower women and give them socio-economic independence. 

Since its world premiere in 2019, “Made in Bangladesh” has accumulated six wins for best film, best director and public awards from the 2019 African Diaspora International Film Festival, Amiens International Film Festival, Asia Pacific Screen Awards and the Festival International de Film Saint-Jean-de-Luz, among others. 

(Rubaiyat Hossain, 2019, 93 minutes.)

INTERMISSION 06/30/22

Join us for a screening of the first documentary in our Fashion on Film x Intermission summer series focused on sustainable fashion.
“Where the Future of Fashion is Headed” follows fashion pioneers as they attempt to make the industry future-proof by experimenting with new fabrics, waste and high-tech design. Vin + Omi’s haute-couture collection for London Fashion Week features fabrics made from plants and plastic bottles. The Amsterdam label Hacked By experiments with the reuse of clothing surpluses, while Flemish designer Jasna Rokegem explores the possibility of clothing made each morning by a 3D printer.
Beyond sustainability, these innovators call for us to look differently at the industry’s demand on designers and the role that clothing plays in our lives. (Bregtje van der Haak, 2018, 50 minutes.)
