In the Project Room, the gallery presents an exhibition titled “Grazia” by Tuan Lee, a Los Angeles and St. Louis-based photographer. This is his first one-person exhibition at Bruno David Gallery.
In what is believed the first fashion magazine, "La Dernière Mode" from the 1870’s, we find a manifesto for fashion: "To teach beauty in everyday things is our concern, or a part of it, but even more a putting-to-use in the cause of delicate enjoyment of artists' visions." Art and fashion exist in separate constructed categories. Art, on the one hand, typically involves something valued as a lasting object. Fashion, on the other hand is ephemeral with an accelerated turnover of style. Tuan Lee’s current work focuses on merging these two forms of expression. His work shows that art may at times resemble fashion and fashion may look like art.
