Fashion Week 2021

Opening 19 November 2021
Deadline 10 November 2021

A Fashion-design Festival created with the aim of comparing the world of fashion with that of art, giving young artist-stylists the opportunity to exhibit their creations in the halls of a Museum of Contemporary Art, historicizing their production.
Organizing an event related to fashion is not an easy task, the CAM Museum has already grappled with this theme in 2006 with the first “Museum Fashion Day” with great success with the public and critics which saw the participation of young stylists -artists from all over Europe.
Innovation, transgression and the voice of a historical moment can be the results of a stylistic production not linked to homologations or stereotyped models. But what is fashion if not an aesthetic product, the result of an observation or an expression of human creativity? These are the elements that unite fashion with art and that make it a sector to which to dedicate exhibitions, museums and events. Between October and November 2021 “Museum Fashion Week” will celebrate this happy marriage. All the works on display are elements of collections conceived, suffered, generated by passions. As sculptors, stylists give shape to their sensations, dig the fabric, chisel the body making it new and unique, transforming it from the eyes of others, perhaps hiding the inner being but leaving the possibility of showing at will what you want to communicate about yourself. . The clothes, which will remain as installations for a whole week at the museum, are configured as fragments of light, almost a bull’s-eye that focuses a part of the artist-stylist’s personality. Obviously sex, passion and mystery represent the themes that give life to more alternative perspectives and which are also the basis of the so-called accessory objects such as shoes, now fetish par excellence, or necklaces, everything becomes a contemporary artistic expression worthy of a museum.
