black dress

Sat Apr 22, 2006 00:00 - Thu Apr 13, 2006

Every woman needs a black dress. Or so the glamour magazines
repeatedly remind us. Too often, though, these dresses are worn
only once for a special occasion and then end up unused and unwanted.
This idea has inspired performance artist Dawn to create a piece
centered on commodification in contemporary society. Dawn has sewn
together a monument to the little black dress and all it represents:
she has collected over 800 images of women modeling their dresses on
eBay and turned them into an elegant yet monumental dress that
borrows from former notions of courtly grandeur and femininity.
Check out the eBay auction and the live feed
from her performance debuting the dress on
Saturday, April 22, 2006 from 7 to 9 p.m. EDT.
