Coded_Couture Talk with curator Judith Hoos Fox
Customization has always been at the heart of couture: the hand-beaded, hand-stitched, one-of-a-kind gown as a piece of art with a specific connection to its wearer. Judith Hoos Fox co-curated Coded Couture, an exhibition that rocked New York Fashion Week last year, on view in Somerville at Tufts University Art Gallery, January 24–May 21, 2017. In it, designers in the digital age introduce fascinating and sometimes alarming approaches to communicate and connect the wearer and the world.
Hear Judith Hoos Fox talk about her explorations of new couture rooted in coding: garments and accessories that detect lies, decode speech, monitor emotions and send tweets.
