SAIC’s Departments of Exhibitions, Fashion, Performance, and the Fashion Resource Center are partnering with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) and the IN>TIME Performance Festival to host Copenhagen-based fashion designer Henrik Vibskov in his first artist residency in the United States. As part of this residency, Vibskov will install “Henrik Vibskov : 0000 : State on State,” a multimedia exhibition including fashion, film, and a massive paper installation that will be on view at SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries from February 7 through February 14, 2019. The MCA is also presenting the stage work STATE on February 7-10, 2019, directed by Jonas Corell Petersen with choreography by Ingri Fiksdal and costume and scenic design by Henrik Vibskov.
Henrik Vibskov has produced more than 30 men’s and women’s fashion collections since he graduated from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, in 2001. He is the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule of the Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Vibskov has exhibited at the Museum of Art and Design, New York; Art Cologne, Germany; MoMA PS1, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and the Textile Museum, Washington, DC, among other notable institutions. He has produced several large-scale solo exhibitions including at TEMPO Documentary Film Festival in Stockholm; Daelim Museum, Seoul; “Neck Plus Ultra” at Galeries Lafayette, Paris and Gammel Strand, Copenhagen; and a major retrospective at Design Museum Helsinki in Finland. Vibskov’s residency, exhibition, and public lecture at SAIC are made possible through the generous support of the Consulate General of Denmark in New York, the Danish Arts in Chicago campaign, and the SAIC Fashion Council.
