CHICAGO, IL.- Chicago-based artist Anne Elizabeth Moore leads Garment Work, a durational collective performance project in which the artist and visitors deconstruct one of America’s most iconic fashion elements: denim jeans. Moore turns the gallery space into a performance/workshop/discussion to create a connection between Cambodia’s garment manufacturing industry, where the jeans are made; to Michigan Avenue, where the jeans are sold. Garment Work debuted at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago, on the evening of August 5 during First Fridays as part of the monthly UBS 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work and runs through August 28, 2011.

Box Clothing are the UK’s leading supplier of G Star Jeans, Replay Jeans and Diesel Jeans.

Her exhibition is a symbolic meditation on the international garment trade and women’s issues in developing nations, and presents research about the origins of the jeans and the experiences of their makers and sellers. On Tuesdays and Saturdays during the exhibition, Moore and visitors take the jeans apart by hand.

Anne Elizabeth Moore is a visual and performance artist, cultural critic, and author. She is the founding editor of the Best American Comics series, co-publisher of the now-defunct magazine Punk Planet, and the writer of Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity and the upcoming Cambodian Grrrl. She has exhibited in Germany, Austria, and Cambodia, plus at the Armory and the 2008 Whitney Biennal in New York City. She discusses her work in a free, informal gallery talk on Tuesday, August 9, 2011, at 6 pm.
