Want to see “five white-gloved garçons lift up petticoats” of giant dress installations and let you in under some skirts? Want to be up inside “Hell on Earth”, “Outer Space” and other themed textile constructions? Cool. Come to the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn on Nov 30. Brooklyn-based artists Kristin Reger and Laura McMillian will not only let you play voyeur, but also explore the relationship between clothing and sexuality, “domestic crafts as woman’s work” vs. art and the art form’s “delegitimization through commercial production.”

They’re also really fun, fine pieces, detailed, hand-made, every individual element conceived for its themed purpose and put together in collaborative sewing circles, complete with rolls of uniquely printed fabrics, hand-crochetted lady-tentacles, sinful illustrations, hole-burning incense sticks, drapes and drapes and drapes, sweat, no sleep and glitter on top.

Upskirt,” Laura McMillian and Kristin Reger, Nov 30 – Dec 21, The Textile Art Center, Brooklyn
