The purpose of this exhibit was to “examine the work of fashion designers who parallel artists in their conceptual approaches” at a time when “the creative endeavors of art and design are constantly being blurred.” Skin Tight was conceived around three major categories, “the architecture of the body, the sexualized body, and the deconstruction of the body … that reflect contemporary anxieties and suppositions related both to the body itself and the emotional resonances connected to it.” Includes essays by Fitzpatrick, Chivaratanond, Bonnet, Evans, Esch, Carrara, and Edelkoort, and designer biographies of Walter Van Beirendonck, Boudicca, Hussein Chalayan, Li Edelkoort, Maison Martin Margiela, Raf Simmon, Under Cover, A.F. Vendervorst, Viktor & Rolf, and Bernhard Willhelm.
