“Roots” brings Parlá to his hometown of Miami, where he spent his formative years immersed in the city’s thriving underground art scene. The exhibition, which includes new paintings and sculptures, creates a poetic dialogue with the surrounding space and invites viewers to consider the connections between the past, present and future.

SCAD AT MIAMI

Miami, Florida
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).

Named “London’s Most Outrageous Dresser” by Vogue, Lismore is known for his outré style and wildly imaginative ensembles that express his sartorial point of view.

A book signing by President Wallace, Lismore and SCAD alumnus Colin Douglas Gray (B.F.A., photography, 2004), who photographed ensembles for Lismore’s latest monograph, will follow the conversation. Books will be available for purchase during the event.
