Theater of Self

Miami, FL


1601 N. Miami Ave.

An exploration of constructed identity through fantasy and materiality, "Theater of Self" is a joint exhibition of fashion and photography by London-based artist, stylist and designer Daniel Lismore and SCAD graduate student Bin Feng (M.F.A. photography).

Lismore, who was named "London’s Most Outrageous Dresser" by Vogue for his dramatic personal style, uniquely juxtaposes haute couture garments with found objects to stage his theatrically designed ensembles.

Feng, a multimedia artist born in Shanghai, China, explores class difference and ambition in the U.S. through carefully constructed, cinematically styled self-portraits.

"Theater of Self" is co-curated by Rafael Gomes, SCAD director of fashion exhibitions, and Ben Tollefson, assistant curator of SCAD exhibitions.

Reception: Thursday, Dec. 1, 6–9 p.m.
The reception will feature a DJ set by SCAD alumnus Helado Negro (B.F.A., computer art, 2003).

Exhibition dates and times:

Dec. 1, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Dec. 2–4, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Dec. 5–13, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This event is held in conjunction with SCAD AT MIAMI, a celebration of contemporary art, creative education and the global art community.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.
