Bellagio Residency: May 2022
Project: “Wearing Critically”
Lucia Cuba, the pioneering Peruvian designer came to Bellagio in May of 2022 to work on the project Wearing Critically, a transdisciplinary study on the experience of children and childhood through the lens of clothing. Her design work is recognized for forging an innovative language for developmental and design-driven processes aimed at children, exploring wearable forms as performative and political devices at the intersection of social justice and art, addressing questions of public health and exploring non-western fashion systems. She currently works as a professor of fashion design at Parsons and is an independent artist.
