The Collective Experience of the Gaze: Challenging the Conventions of Fashion
What will be the Zeitgeist of our challenging times? How will the Present collision of thoughts be summed up in the distant Future? Local, interdisciplinary artist, Zaire Kaczmarski, has been investigating identity, power, and womanhood as an intimate and collective experience from the perspective of the gaze. In collaboration with Clad in Women’s Fashion Boutique, she presents an immersive, thought-provoking art installation and experience.
The Art Installation runs from Thursday April 13 - Saturday April 15 during regular store hours 10 - 6pm. And don't miss the Reception Thursday April 13, 5 - 8 pm which includes performance collaboration with dancers from Festival Ballet Providence. It's located at Clad in Women’s Fashion Boutique, 210 Wayland Avenue, Providence, RI 02906. And it's free and open to the public.

Photography, video and installation are her main areas of action on her creative process. Zaire's work is informed by her cultural heritage and the social contexts she has lived in since immigrating to the US. She has been awarded the 2016 Regional Artist Project Grants from the Arts & Science Council in North Carolina and her work has been shown in museums and galleries including Mint Museum Uptown, McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Blue Spiral 1 Gallery and Queens University. Currently she is pursuing an MFA at the School of Visual Arts where she is expanding her art practice developing immersive experiences that explore the formation of identity.
