Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style

Museum, History/Science, Art Show

June 28, 2019 - September 15, 2019 Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style celebrates the enduring influence of the kimono on fashion. Inspired by materials, forms and decorative motifs since the opening of Japan in the mid-nineteenth century, western fashion designers, alongside other artists, have produced works that acknowledge a Japanese persuasion. Organized in partnership with the Kyoto Costume Institute and Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, this exhibition displays Japanese kimono side by side with western fashionable garments from the 1870s to today. Featured designers include Gabrielle Chanel, John Galliano, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Iris van Herpen, Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo—plus over a dozen examples from CAM’s permanent collection. Museum hours: Tuesday-Sunday 11:00-5:00 with extended hours until 8:00 Thursday evenings.

Women Breaking Boundaries

Ceramics/Pottery, Drawings/Works on Paper, Gallery, Painting, Photography, Textiles, Sculpture, Museum, Prints

A special exhibition that explores the role of women in art and art history at the Cincinnati Art Museum through artworks from the museum’s permanent collection created by female artists from the seventeenth century to today. The cross-departmental selection of 38 artworks from Europe, North America and Asia are in a range of mediums, including oil on canvas, metalwork, ceramic, and prints to photography and fashion. Prominent artists include Georgia O’Keeffe, Lorna Simpson, Kara Walker, Mary Cassatt, Julia Margaret Cameron, Elizabeth Catlett, and Chiyo Mitsuhisa. The exhibition will encourage visitors to think critically about gender, inclusion, and diversity and how that translates to the museum’s gallery walls. Women Breaking Boundaries is conceived of as the museum’s main contribution and focal point to the larger ArtsWave Power of Her initiative. During Power of Her, the majority of the museum’s permanent gallery rotations throughout the museum will focus on female artists. Visitors are encouraged to view Women Breaking Boundaries, explore rotating galleries, as well as the Cincinnati Art Museum permanent collection galleries that feature women. A free gallery guide highlighting female artists in the collection will be available at the entrance to the museum. Related programs will be held at the museum in conjunction with the run of the exhibition, including Family First Saturday, Gallery Experiences, gallery talks and more. For a full list of programming, please visit the museum’s online calendar. Women Breaking Boundaries will be on view in the Vance Waddell and Mayerson Galleries (Galleries 124 and 125). Admission is free. Photography is encouraged, but no flash. On social media, use #WomenBreakingBoundaries and #PowerofHer. Free general admission to the Cincinnati Art Museum is made possible by a gift from the Rosenthal Family Foundation. Parking is free. The museum is open Tuesday–Sunday, 11:00-5:00 with extended hours until 8:00 Thursday evenings.
