Rachel Breen: The Garment Solidarity Project

From site: Gould Library

Monday, April 2nd, 2018
2:00 – 5:00 pm / Gould Library
Garment Solidarity Project

In conjunction with the exhibit The Price of Our Clothes, artist Rachel Breen will perform The Garment Solidarity Project

The Garment Solidarity Project expresses solidarity with garment workers in Bangladesh and around the world through the act of sewing clothes for the women who sew our clothes.  By sewing the common clothing of Bangladeshi garment workers, the shalwar kameez, in public, the “making” process embeds questions about how our clothes are made, into the clothes themselves. With this act, Rachel hopes to raise critical questions about how our clothes are made and act in solidarity with these workers.
