Contemporary Muslim Fashions Exhibition
July 4, 2020
Exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
Design: Isometric Studio
Address: 2 E 91st St, New York, NY 10128, USA
Contemporary Muslim Fashions, New York City
Foregrounding an ethos of dignity and personal agency, this 6,275 sq. ft. exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum features contemporary innovations in international modest fashion—including 80+ ensembles, alongside prints and videos.
The exhibition was originally curated by and presented at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, and the Cooper Hewitt presentation required sophisticated design to re-present the same objects in a space half the size.
Isometric designed a refined yet edgy visual identity that bridges exquisite couture pieces from European designers with street fashion and feminist artworks.
The exhibit architecture is inspired by the plan of the Córdoba Mosque in Spain, using translucent half-arches to subdivide the museum’s largest gallery into intimate, thematic rooms.
Along with sweeping curvilinear platforms and minimalist custom labels, the architecture democratizes the space and evokes a shared sense of community.
