Rodarte is the subject of an exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. It opened last month, the exhibition will be the finale to the museum’s 30th anniversary celebrations and the first fashion exhibition it has organized.
Designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy were chosen because “they work a lot like artists in the sense that they’re almost artisanal in the way they produce their work; they somewhat go against the grain of having a really huge schedule of shows. They tend to take time with their collections and they live in L.A. and have an interesting relationship with film and the art scene.”
“We are truly honored to be chosen by the NMWA for an exhibition on Rodarte,” said Laura Mulleavy. “Institutions that recognize the achievements of women in the arts are of great importance, and we couldn’t think of a more perfect home to showcase our work.”
The Washington D.C. exhibition will run until Spring 2018.
