Curated by Issey Miyake, and showing at the ever evolving hip 21_21 Design Sight, XXIst Century Man poses the question, “where are we headed, now that we live in the century once hailed as the future?” Along with several other notable artists and designers, the heroic Miyake attempts to answer that question by adorning mannequins made of Dyson cleaner parts with his Spring/Summer 2008 collection. Did you get all that? Let me summarize; fashion, art, design, rhetorical questions and house cleaning. This is definitely on my ‘to go see’ list.
