Brooke Hodge, Curator of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, 1-26-07
Brooke Hodge’s most recent project is Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture, a major thematic exhibition that examines the intersections and overlaps between fashion and architecture. Skin + Bones is on view at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, until March 5, 2007. In addition, Ms. Hodge was one of four curators of the National Design Triennial, which is currently on view at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, in New York.
Organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and curated by Brooke Hodge, the museum’s Curator of Architecture and Design, Skin + Bones is the first major museum exhibition devoted to the extensive and telling similarities between contemporary architecture and fashion. Skin + Bones explores the parallels between the “skin”—or exterior surface—and the “bones”—or structural framework—of both clothing and buildings of the past 25 years. Forty-five of today’s most brilliant and creative fashion designers and architects are represented by a wide range of more than 300 objects: from stunning one-of-a-kind haute couture gowns to intricate architectural models and special full-scale installations. This exhibition is the first opportunity for viewers in the United States to see many of the works.
