The Huntington Beach Art Center presents Frau Fiber’s Mission in America, a solo exhibition featuring artist Carole Frances Lung and her alter ego Frau Fiber. Frau Fiber explores fashion and textile production and consumption through garment production, installations, and performances.
At the “Tailor Made Pop-Up Shop” patrons can drop off their clothes in need of tailoring paying a price of what garment workers are paid around the world by spinning the “Wheel of Wages” which determines the cost to have their garments tailored. Frau Fiber will then tailor or mend the clothes and patrons can pick their clothes up at the end of the pop-up event.
