"Art and fashion have a symbiotic relationship,” said Battista, curator, writer, and Program Director, MA Contemporary Art, Sotheby’s Institute of Art New York. “I love that the artists have considered fashion in the broadest sense, from personal style and identity politics to street art and celebrity culture. Abstract patterns that derive from textiles, as well as works derived from textiles themselves, play an important role in the show. The work of mainstream artists sits effortlessly with that of the Fountain House Gallery artists, and creates a dynamic and fun dialogue across generations and styles."
