How To: Untitled Runway Show is an artist’s book that presents K8 Hardy’s performance Untitled Runway Show, created for the 2012 Whitney Biennial. For this work, Hardy orchestrated a live fashion show performance on the fourth floor of the Breuer building that rivaled the sort of presentations made during a Paris or New York fashion week. How To follows the apparatus of professional fashion and is organized around three sections: The Show (lookbook), Backstage and The Campaign. For each of these sections, Hardy specifically created a new series of images. Also included are essays by five contributors, many of whom were involved themselves in the original performance. The variety of the writing in this book and the perspectives on the piece bring a fresh understanding and richness to Hardy’s incredible performance and unconventional work in general.
