past and present
The TFC has organized numerous exhibitions and regularly facilitates artifact loans to cultural institutions around the world. Past and current partnerships have resulted in a number of robust displays relating to the design and social history represented by dress objects organized in traditional museum spaces and unconventional public venues. If your institution is interested in borrowing artifacts for an exhibition in a stable and secure location, please contact TFC director Annette Becker firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fashions Inspired by the American Frontier: The American West looms large in our imaginations, with tall tales, spaghetti westerns, and other forms of visual culture creating a fantastical and idealized view of the past. This exhibition presents American, Native American, and international fashion designers whose work encourages us to think more deeply about our own ideas of this larger-than-life past.

August 2 – September 15
The Goss-Michael Foundation
“On Bodies” features works from the permanent collection of the TFC and The Goss-Michael Foundation, one of the premier collections of contemporary British fine art in the United States. High fashion ensembles by John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Todd Oldham, Zac Posen, and other illustrate the ways that fashion designers literally and figuratively shape our bodies, while artworks by Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, James Gilbert, and others offer more abstracted ways of considered our complex embodied experiences.
