About

Contemporary footwear intersects gender and fashion in continually new and creative ways. In design and fabrication, both functional and fanciful footwear emerge from a collaborative process of creativity and craftsmanship. The exhibition presents a chronology of fashionable shoes over the past 100 years as well as focusing on footwear from a variety of perspectives, including custom or limited-edition shoes handcrafted for private clients, and shoes mass-produced for the consumer market. In addition, a section of the exhibition features artists and illustrators who use the shoe as a protagonist in their individual artistic narratives.
