Annica Cuppetelli: Tight/Laced
Annica Cuppetelli: Tight/Laced, May 19 – September 4
The Muskegon Museum of Art presents, Annica Cuppetelli: Tight/Laced, a new exhibition on May 19. Tight/Laced is a large-scale architectural installation by Detroit-based artist and fashion designer Annica Cuppetelli, who uses clothing materials and techniques to explore the constraints and restrictions society has placed on women’s bodies throughout history.
Through wood framing, fabric, lacing, and grommets, Tight/Laced features two large architectural forms that directly reference the corset, a fashion device made to squeeze and reshape the female body to force it to conform to the tastes and ideals of the day. Through her work, Cuppetelli reveals the ongoing struggle women face for bodily autonomy.
Thursday, May 19 at 5:00 PM, followed by an Artist Talk at 6:00
The reception will be in conjunction with the opening for Measure Twice: Sculptures of Ted Lott
