Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between

Published to accompany the exhibition taking place from May 4 – September 4, 2017  at The Met Fifth Avenue, New York.

This lavishly illustrated book examines Kawakubo's fascination with interstitially, or the space between boundaries. Existing within and between dualities-whether self/other, object/subject, art/fashion-Kawakubo's work challenges the rigid divisions that have come to define received notions of identity and fashionability, inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, re-creation, and, ultimately, hybridity.

Scattered throughout are quotes from Rei Kawakubo...

"There's value in bad taste" 2008

"To me [the circle] is the purest form of design in existence" 2006

...In addition to an essay by the curator Andrew Bolton, a conversation between Kawakubo and Bolton, and a very large poster.
