2012 Biennial Performances

Performance: K8 Hardy

SUN, May 20, 2012
4 pm

Fourth Floor

Untitled Runway Show, 2012

Supplementing her photographs and sculptures on view on the second floor, K8 Hardy stages a major new performance, in which she will re-create many of the trappings of a runway show by a top fashion designer, using an experienced production team, lighting, sound, hair, and makeup technicians, as well as professional models. Walking on a runway designed by fellow Biennial artist Oscar Tuazon, the models will wear outfits conceived and styled by Hardy. This performance demonstrates Hardy’s continuing interest in subverting and complicating fashion and the expectations that it creates.

Special entry tickets required. Tickets are free with admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Request a ticket for this event when purchasing your Museum ticket.

Additional performance at 5 pm.
