Step out with SCAD FASH at opening reception for 'Form & Function'
1600 Peachtree St. NW
SCAD FASH presents Form & Function: Shoe Art by Chris Francis, an exhibition of iconic footwear by the Los Angeles-based shoe designer.
Francis blurs the line between fashion and art, crafting sculptural, even architectural, designs characterized by unconventional techniques, strong colors, bold shapes and sharp lines. Influenced by the early 20th-century Bauhaus school of design, he manipulates a wide range of uncommon shoemaking materials such as glass, concrete, metal and plastic. Form & Function approaches Francis' work expressively as wearable art, presenting a selection of designs that channel the rebellious, DIY spirit of the punk rock movement.
