FROM THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE TO THE ART GALLERY:
SANDIE YI’S RADICAL VISION OF BEAUTY
with Sandie Yi, Amanda Cachia, and Anthony Tusler
de Young Museum | Koret Auditorium
Saturday, March 31
Sandie Yi will illustrate and discuss Crip Couture, her collection of
disability fashion, in conjunction with the exhibition The Fashion
World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. Seen as
prosthetics, orthotics, or an unsettling dream, Yi’s work elevates
disability-inspired clothing to the level of art and high fashion.
Freelance curator Amanda Cachia will introduce Yi and talk about
current trends in disability art. Disability scholar Anthony Tusler
will explain how Crip Couture compares with and often surpasses
Gaultier’s radical approach to fashion and art.
This event is free of charge.
To ensure availability, make requests for accommodations before March 22.
