Do clothes make the woman? Check with Jane Szabo @ MOAH.

Fashion · Visual arts

“Artist as Subject,” an upcoming exhibition at the Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in Lancaster, California, expands upon the traditional self-portrait by exposing the artist’s inner state, body, history or habits of daily life. Featured in MOAH’s show is photography by Los Angeles artist Jane Szabo, who explores the outward ways in which women construct their identities in society.

Szabo creates dresses from familiar materials like coffee filters, road maps and dental x-rays and uses the dresses, paired with related objects, as a means of inviting the viewer to contemplate the connections, and ponder their own personal mythology.
