December 15, 2013 - February 17, 2014 Under the Influence of Finance and Fashion: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation
The artists and works in this exhibition explore the relationship between economics and consumer culture and reveal the immense impact that socioeconomics has had on the art of the contemporary generation, as well as on our culture at large. This is especially important considering the recent financial crisis and the constant bombardment from the media on luxury, fashion and glamour. The mixed messages felt in the collision of class and culture proves that we are all under the influence of finance and fashion.
