Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History
The Jewish Museum, 1109 5th Ave at 92nd St, New York, 10128
: An Unruly History is the first Jewish Museum exhibition to focus on the influential American fashion designer, artist, and entrepreneur. On view from March 18 to August 7, 2016, the exhibition explores Isaac Mizrahi’s unique position at the intersection of high style and popular culture. While best known for his clothing designs, Mizrahi’s creativity has expanded over a nearly three decade career to embrace acting, directing, set and costume design, writing, and cabaret performance. Spanning his first collection in 1987 to the present day, An Unruly History weaves together the many threads of his prolific career, juxtaposing work in fashion, film, television, and the performing arts.
