DESTE FOUNDATION FOR CONTEMPORARY ART

Diller, Scofidio + Renfro: The Look

Photographs by Matthew Monteith.

Diller, Scofidio + Renfro: The LookIn 2013 the Deste Foundation commissioned Diller, Scofidio + Renfro to curate a capsule collection and integrate the selected works into an independent project. The Look, a narrative in 18 scenes about youth, aging and identity, examines the notion of the classic in fashion and architecture.

Using the astutely reductive observation as grounds for their 2013 commission from the Deste Foundation—for which an artist is selected annually to curate and interpret a capsule collection of five to 10 international fashion designs produced that year—the firm conceived and art directed a narrative of 18 images, photographed by artist Matthew Monteith. Originally exhibited at the Benaki Museum in Athens, Greece last year, they’re collected and reproduced here for the first time. Among the conceptual mix of high and low accessories spotlighted in the project: cork lace-up shoes by Maison Martin Margiela, a pearl earring necklace by Slow and Steady Wins the Race, jumbo fishnets from costume company Leg Avenue, and a Blu disposable e-cigarette. For the location of their shoot, DS+R—who cite the images of midcentury photographer Julius Shulman as an apt cross-reference for exposing unexpected alignments between architecture, fashion, and lifestyle—decided upon Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, a space that’s both an icon of Modernism, yet ambiguous in time and style. The crew took a gloves-off, hands-on approach to the landmarked property as they staged a series of subversive, irreverent scenes exploring youth, aging, identity, and the notion of “classic.”
