MFA Student Exhibition

Jessica Frantal and Mali Winfield Mrozinski
April 28 – May 13, 2016

Jessica Frantal explores the interconnection of technology and fashion in “Systema Technaturae”. This multi-media exhibition imagines a future in which garments become a near-biological extension of the wearer, functioning independently on their behalf. The pieces react and respond to the world around the wearer, creating new levels of communication – body//garment, garment//environment, wearer//others.
Mali Winfield Mrozinski’s new body of work entitled “INVENTory” investigates design in response to personal observations about the idiosyncrasies of her own behavior. Through a series of handcrafted rugs, furniture and garments that can hover between feeling fantastical or pragmatic, Mrozinski’s work imagines a new utility for designed objects.
Design Gallery events are free and open to the public.
