Viscose Journal Issue 03 Launch 

    Thu, Jul 28, 2022, 5–8pm

    Viscose Journal Issue 03 Launch

    Special performance by feyfey WORLDWIDE
    Readings by CFGNY and Simon Wu
    Fashion book bazaar by Bungee Space / 3standardstoppage studio

    Marking the launch of its third issue, the independent fashion journal Viscose takes over SculptureCenter’s courtyard for an evening of genre-defying fashion activity. Responding to the issue theme of “ASIAS,” the evening will feature New York City-based contributors who probe and challenge ideas of identity and heritage, overlaying geographical, social, and sartorial senses of belonging.

    The evening will include a special performance by the New York City-based Chinese designer feyfey WORLDWIDE, featuring the local artist-couple Chris Capuozzo and Denise Ranallo Capuozzo. The performance takes the form of an ambient wedding anniversary party, and extends the central storyline from feyfey’s newest collection “I LOVE MY WIFE SO MUCH,” about a henpecked husband and his idolized eccentric wife. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and Royal College of Art in London, feyfey WORLDWIDE has become known internationally for ingeniously exploring modern femininity in a humorous and alternative way, most notably through her dramatically inflatable garments.

    Enjoy readings from art collective and fashion brand CFGNY, Simon Wu (critic and recipient of the Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant), and Viscose’s editor-in-chief Jeppe Ugelvig.

    Finally, browse through an impromptu fashion book bazaar organized by Bungee Space, run by 3standardstoppage studio, the cult art bookstore with outposts in both Beijing and downtown New York. The fan-shaped third issue of Viscose will be for sale for $30.

    RSVP essential here.
