Eckhaus Latta: Possessed, Whitney Museum of American Art

Eckhaus Latta: Possessed.  At the Whitney Museum of American Art. 

Eckhaus Latta: Possessed highlights the work of Eckhaus Latta, a compelling young design team that is part of a new generation of designers operating at the intersection of fashion and contemporary art. The New York and Los Angeles–based fashion label was founded in 2011 by Mike Eckhaus (b. 1987) and Zoe Latta (b. 1987), who met as students at the Rhode Island School of Design. 
They are known for using unexpected materials, emphasizing texture and tactility in their designs, and for incorporating writing, performance, and video into their practice. 
For their first solo museum exhibition, Eckhaus Latta will present a new three-part installation that embraces and brings into conversation various aspects of the fashion industry, from advertising and the consumer experience to voyeurism. Elements of the space—such as clothing racks, display shelves, and a dressing room—will be created by more than a dozen artists with whom Eckhaus Latta has been in dialogue.
Eckhaus Latta: Possessed is organized by Christopher Y. Lew, Nancy and Fred Poses Associate Curator, and Lauri London Freedman, head of product development.
At the Whitney Museum of American Art.
