Fashioning the Future is an experiential journey through contemporary Argentine fashion that merges science, technology, and creativity. As part of the 2018 Inter-American Development Bank and the Inter-American Investment Corporation Board of Governors Annual Meeting, this exhibition celebrates the richness of Argentina’s creative and scientific contributions as well as their leadership at the forefront of innovative thinking in the region. By viewing these potential combinations of the industrial, digital, and biological worlds through contemporary Argentine fashion, we can imagine how creativity and science can work in unison to positively transform our lives in the future.

In addition to the fashion, this immersive exhibition features both a site-specific installation as well as a digital/physical app experience. This technology will supplement – and react to – the fashion on display both through on-screen content as well as sound art.
