Refashioning: CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga, Japan Society
November 18, 2022-February 19, 2023
Japan Society presents the exhibition Refashioning: CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga from November 18, 2022 through February 19, 2023. The first show devoted to the art of contemporary fashion at Japan Society, the exhibition explores the work of CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga, two emerging fashion labels that engage with the intersections between fashion, art, and identity. Featuring garments, accessories, and textile-related works, the exhibition examines the ways in which these two practices—one based in New York, and the other in Tokyo—experiment with artistic mediums beyond conventional forms of dress, while challenging preconceived notions of gender and identity.
