[Oldham and weiss]
Todd Oldham and Michael Weiss in Conversation
Moderated by Sherri Geldin
Tue, Mar 6, 2018 7 PM
Take a front seat for an engaging conversation about fashion, design, creativity, and experimentation at this talk featuring industry legends Todd Oldham and Michael Weiss.

A superstar of the 1990s fashion world who continues to innovate through collaborations with Target, The Hotel of South Beach, and American Modern Books, Oldham is the focus of our current exhibition All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion, a survey of his irreverent, exquisitely crafted, and deliriously embellished ensembles from 1988 to 1999. In his more than 30 years with fashion retailers Express and Limited Brands, Weiss served in a variety of executive roles, including chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Express. He continues to remain active in the arts as a trustee of the Columbus Symphony and enthusiastic patron of the Wex. The conversation is moderated by Wexner Center Director Sherri Geldin.

The galleries stay open until 9 pm so you can explore the exhibition after the event. All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion<https://wexarts.org/exhibitions/all-everything-todd-oldham-fashion> is on view through April 15, 2018.

Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1961, Todd Oldham grew up wearing handmade clothes from his grandmother, who taught him to sew. Starting his career with a $100 loan from his parents to buy cotton jersey-which Oldham used to create pieces he sold to Neiman Marcus-Oldham eventually launched his first clothing line in 1989. By 1991, he was awarded the Council of Fashion Designers of America's Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent.

In addition to designing for his own line, Oldham has consulted for the house of Escada, worked with the fashion retailer Old Navy, designed furniture for La-Z-Boy, and taken on hotel design with The Hotel of South Beach. He's written and edited more than 22 books, producing monographs on artists including John Waters, Wayne White, and Charley Harper. Current projects include the Hand Made Modern line of craft supplies in collaboration with Target, and Kid Made Modern, the children's craft kit company Oldham cofounded with partner Tony Longoria, which has since expanded into children's high-end clothing.

Michael Weiss has spent the entirety of his working life in the business of fashion retailing, first in New York and since 1981 in Columbus, where he joined Limited Brands. Over the next 25 years, he served there in a variety of executive roles. In 2007 he became chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Express, from which he formally retired in 2015.

Weiss has taken great pleasure serving as a trustee and patron to various cultural organizations including the Greater Columbus Arts Council, Columbus College of Art & Design, and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. He and his wife, Arlene, have been longtime champions of the Wex and are founding members of the Wexner Center's Donor Circles. Weiss has also served on community and corporate boards, including the American Red Cross of Columbus, United Way of Franklin County, and the Columbus Jewish Foundation as well as Collective Brands, PacSun, Chico's, and Borders. Born in Brooklyn, Weiss studied English at Syracuse University.

Winter/Spring 2018 Preview

Feb 3, 2018-Apr 15, 2018
"A joyous exhibition....Just about every piece in the show contains a stunning detail, surprise, or secret told....They are as astonishing today as they were on the runway."-Wall Street Journal on All of Everything

Immerse yourself in the brilliant imagination, irreverent wit, and meticulous craft of an American fashion icon. Featuring more than 70 ensembles, All of Everything explores Todd Oldham's exuberantly styled, extravagantly embellished fashions from the 1990s. The first major museum retrospective of his work, this exhibition makes its only Midwest stop at the Wex.

In a single decade-from 1989 to 1999-Oldham blazed through the New York fashion world, reshaping the runway landscape with opulent garments inspired by everything from Persian carpets to thrift-store finds. This celebration of using "everything" is central to his aesthetic. Taking an audacious turn away from the minimalist tendencies of 1990s fashion, Oldham delighted in incorporating vibrant shades, dense patterns, and a near-promiscuous range of materials in his garments, giving them a sculptural quality and visual heft. His choice of runway talent was also forward-thinking: Oldham was among the first to work with African American models Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell as well as rising stars Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, and Christy Turlington.

Surrounded by installations of his ensembles, displays of custom accessories, and hours of runway footage, you'll be dazzled by sequins and Swarovski crystals, fine hand embroidery and a dress made of pipe cleaners, and a recent, one-of-a-kind gown made in collaboration with students from the Rhode Island School of Design. Oldham himself designed the exhibition and wrote labels for each ensemble, providing firsthand insight into his creations, which as RISD curator Kate Irvin observes, "resonate with thought, feeling, and a profound commitment to fully exploring potential and possibilities."

All of Everything: Todd Oldham Fashion was originally organized by and exhibited at the RISD Museum in Providence, Rhode Island, with support from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, along with the generous partnership of the Rhode Island School of Design, its Board of Trustees, and Museum Governors. Additional support was provided by The Coby Foundation, Carol Nulman, and American Modern Books.
Support for the Wexner Center's presentation is provided by Portfolio Creative and Judi and Jim Stillwell.

William Kentridge: The Refusal of Time<http://bit.ly/2BOfWkv>
Winter/Spring 2018 Preview<https://wexarts.org/series/winter-spring-2018-preview>
Feb 3, 2018-Apr 15, 2018

"A great artist working at the peak of his powers"-Boston Globe

Experience the fusion of art, science, and history, and explore thought-provoking ideas about time in this spectacularly immersive installation by acclaimed artist William Kentridge. Combining projections of his evocative, often-humorous hand-drawn animations and live-action sequences with music and sculpture, The Refusal of Time is as visually stunning as it is mind-opening.

The project evolved from Kentridge's conversations with Harvard professor Peter Galison about revolutions in the conception of time around the dawn of the 20th century-from Albert Einstein's radical theory of relativity to new attempts to standardize time, a means of asserting control and fortifying colonization. The latter is an ongoing theme for Kentridge, who lives and works in South Africa.

For The Refusal of Time, Kentridge transforms the space of a gallery into a vibrant theater of activity where you'll move among screens, dispersed crates and chairs, large megaphones, and at the center, a mysteriously imposing wooden device. Appearing to breathe, the machine seems to power the images and sounds that fill your senses.
Hypnotic, mesmerizing, and rich in its ambiguity, the work is a poetic investigation into humanity's journey through time as an act of resistance and rebellion-against imposed worldviews as well as our own mortality. As Kentridge said of the work, it's a search for "moments of coherence, of understanding and changing the world, which is the most we can hope for."
