Wearing Time: Returns, Recalls, Renewals
This four-day film festival explores cinema’s fascination with the abstract relationship between fashion and time. Fashion Project commissioned the acclaimed Fashion in Film, based at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, to curate the festival. Through rare archival shorts, celebrated classics, newsreels, documentaries, fashion films, and artist films, Wearing Time investigates cinematic clothing as a vehicle of reconnecting past and present. The festival asks what concrete manifestations of time fashion and clothing enable: What kind of chronologies and histories? Origins and memories? Echoes and shadows? Projections, visions, or premonitions?
The festival’s curators are Marketa Uhlirova of Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, who is co-founder of Fashion in Film, and Tim Gunning of the University of Chicago’s Department of Film and Media Studies. All festival programs are complimentary, with multiple films and talks offered throughout the four days in Fashion Project’s third level space, converted to a screening room by Tui Pranich and Tui Lifestyle. The film festival is presented with local partners: Miami International Film Festival; Lowe Art Museum; and Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives. Wearing Time marks the conclusion of Fashion Project’s fall/winter series of exhibition and programs, 50 + 50: A Century of Fashion, celebrating the past 100 years in fashion and the 50th anniversary of Bal Harbour Shops.
