Vestibule: Soft Core Apparel

Artist: Brittany Powell | Curator: Kendra Larson
September 28th, 2012 – October 28th, 2012

Curator Kendra Larson opens a new Vestibule exhibition season with the wall-sized, contact paper murals of artist Brittany Powell.  Soft Core Apparel explores the absurdity cum pornography of American Apparel ads as large scale recreations that combine humor and poignancy in identifying the sexploitation of the feminine form to sell clothing.

About the Vestibule

The Vestibule is an independent project space housed within Disjecta and dedicated to showing dynamic contemporary art. We are primarily interested in site-specific installations, collaborations, and any other original ideas that execute the space in exciting ways. The Vestibule was established December 2009.
