Frau Fiber's Mission in America

  • Huntington Art Center (map)

Frau Fiber of ILGWU (Institute for Labor Generosity Workers and Uniforms) will have work on view at the Huntington Beach Art Center from June 15 through July 6, 2019.

Through video, installation, performance, sculpture, photographs and banners, this exhibition introduces Orange County to Frau Fiber and her mission to transform the fast fashion apparel supply chain. Embodied in the uniform she wears and he action she takes, Frau Fiber is a former East German textile worker, turned international super hero. Advocating for “Fast Fashion” production transparency; honoring the labor behind the label; and emancipation from consumption through skill-sharing, Frau Fiber asks the public to exchange their leisure time for the production and/or mending of textiles and apparel.  Frau Fiber has created durational works addressing these issues for LGBTQ centers; Library Maker spaces; craft, art and design museums; and academic and community galleries and centers.   

Opening Reception Saturday June 15, 6:30-9:30 pm 
Tailor Made Pop-up Alterations: June 18-20, 25-27, July 2, 3-8 pm.
