Cheryl Donegan Fashion Presentation

As part of the opening of Cheryl Donegan’s solo exhibition GRLZ + VEILS, tonight’s fashion presentation, GODZ Grlz, premieres a new fashion line that the artist developed during her time as the AAM’s 2017–18 Gabriela and Ramiro Garza Distinguished Artist in Residence. The imagery on the garments originates from photographs that Donegan took of graffiti scratching on air conditioners—reworked and reimagined for apparel. In addition to the couture pieces featured this evening, a line of ready-to-wear items is available through the AAM Shop. New York–based artist Alix Pearlstein directed and choreographed the presentation, which features models from the Roaring Fork Valley.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.

Support for Cheryl Donegan’s residency and exhibition is provided by the Gabriela and Ramiro Garza Distinguished Artist in Residence Fund. Additional support is provided by the AAM National Council.
