The Price of Our Clothes

  • Perlman Teaching Museum, Weitz Center for Creativity, Carleton College 320 3rd Street East Northfield, MN, 55057 United States (map)

The Price of Our Clothes is a material meditation on garment factory disasters with artist Rachel Breen and poet Alison Morse. Responding to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City, March 25th, 1911, and the collapse of garment factories at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, April 24th, 2013, the exhibition presents evocative mixed-media artwork that is sewn, painted, stitched on and/or punctured with a sewing machine, powerful sound pieces, poems, and performances. The Price of Our Clothes encourages contemplation about our historic and present day relationship with the people who make the clothes we wear.
