Tonight: Adam Arnold's "Madrina" Talk at PAM

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Jan 10, 2013 at 11:14 AM

One of the many great things about Adam Arnold is that he's constantly pushing the envelope of what his role as an apparel designer is. From conceiving and installing his own water sculpture for a runway show to designing furniture and ballet costumes for Oregon Ballet Theater, his creative straying gives us an excuse to look at what clothing design means in different contexts. His most recent project is with the Portland Art Museum, wherein he created an apparel-like response to one of the sculptures in their permanent collection, "Madrina," done by Mark Calderon in 2001. In this week's Sold Out, I spoke to him about the project and about his recent tendency to do everything but a conventional fashion presentation. It gives some insight to what he'll be discussing at tonight's lecture, which is scheduled for 6 pm at PAM. It's currently sold out, but I'll do my best to report back, but in the meantime, read the interview.

The sculpture Arnold feels is menacing and haunting.
