Wexner Prize Events 2004

<br>Events honoring clothing designer Issey Miyake, recipient of the 11th Wexner Prize

Tue, May 11, 2004 10 AMFri, May 28, 2004 10 AM
Repeats every week every Monday and every Tuesday and every Wednesday and every Thursday and every Friday until Fri May 28 2004 .

See selected examples of Issey Miyake's work firsthand in this installation highlighting his work with A-POC (A Piece of Cloth), initiated in the late 1990s.
A-POC takes Miyake's touchstone idea of creating clothing from a single piece of cloth to its most modern realization. With A-POC, a piece of thread is fed into a machine, and, in a single computer-aided process, the fabric, texture, and form of a finished garment are created without cutting or sewing.

By no means intended as a full-scale exhibition, this installation reflects Issey Miyake's wish to share a few of his latest efforts with Ohio State students during his visit to campus to receive the Wexner Prize. Happily, it also allows the Wexner Center's broader audiences to experience his work firsthand.
