LAND, Corazon del Sol, and the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles hosted a presentation of designs by groundbreaking fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. A formal fashion show displayed Gernreich’s designs from the sixties and seventies in celebration of the closing of DEPOSITO: an exhibition featuring a selection of works from Galleria del Deposito (1963 – 1969).
This event was part of the ongoing programming series for Perpetual Conceptual: Echoes of Eugenia Butler, a multi-part exhibition that was focused around Eugenia Butler, Sr. and the conceptual projects that took place at Eugenia Butler Gallery (1968 – 1971). Perpetual Conceptual was presented by LAND and Corazon del Sol, in collaboration with the City of West Hollywood, as part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945 – 1980.
Under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles.
