Headpieces for Peace
Thursday, February 27–Saturday, March 22, 2014 Friday, March 14, from 6–7:30pm (special hours)
FIAF celebrates fashion with Headpieces for
Peace by award-winning multimedia
artist Jessica Sofia Mitrani.
Originally commissioned by the fashion collective threeASFOUR for their exhibition Insalaam Inshalom shown in Tel Aviv in 2011, the installation
presents a wry examination of fashion
and feminism, two themes central
to Mitrani’s work.
Winner of the 2012 A Shaded View
on Fashion Film (ASVOFF) Grand Prix,
this short video confronts serious
themes in a quirky and humorous way.
For the first time in New York, see this video along with the 11 headpieces
made from printed fabric designed
Free & open to the public
