Rachel Breen: Shroud

Created by artist Rachel Breen and poet Alison Morse, The Price of Our Clothes is a material meditation on garment factory disasters. Responding to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City, March 25th, 1911, and the collapse of garment factories at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, April 24th, 2013, the exhibition presents evocative mixed-media artwork that is sewn, painted, stitched on and/or punctured with a sewing machine, powerful sound pieces, poems, and performances. The Price of Our Clothes encourages contemplation about our historic and present-day relationship with the people who make the clothes we wear.
