I launched Natural Process: A Study in Worn Denim last weekend with April Nett, Elysa DiMauro, and Steve Streisguth at Elixr Coffee in Philly. We couldn’t be happier with the turnout and it seems like the general impression has been positive. We tried our best to take some great photos of the show but we ended up slurping down the delicious libations provided by Art in the Age instead so here’s a small collection of what we’ve got. More photos coming soon.
I’m in Elixr a few days a week and it’s pretty cool to see how people interact with the show, reading the tags and various other accruements that accompany each piece, then ask the employees “What’s with the jeans?” I’ve seen a couple folks writing down brand names (which rules) or asking more about the manufacturers and it’s great to see that people are taking an interest in this.
The event will be up at Elixr Coffee through mid-February Mon.-Sun. during their open hours. If you’re stopping by, make sure to read the tags attached to each to find out a bit about the owners. Several pairs also have notes from the owners attached nearby which provide some insight as to what the jeans went through.
We really appreciate everyone’s support for this exhibition and if you have any questions at all about anything do feel free to ask. All photos were taken by Steve Streisguth. Click below to see the rest of the photos.
