Examining themes of fashion and consumption, we will present durational performances and installation works in this former furniture store's windows. Questions regarding the relationship of art and commerce today are myriad, and while there are no simple answers, most observers agree that there are many troubling implications of the influences of speculation, branding and celebrity on the current climate. Giving away the aesthetic experience through such a temporary event is a return to earlier, more idealistic times, yet placing the work within a shopping district anchors it to the realistic present. We imagine this to be an exciting event which will attract art audiences, as well as provide an unusual experience to passers-by.

 Not all artists and writers featured in _suture_ are known for addressing the subject of healing, but a reconciliation is visible in their work. Current and seminal pieces, many created or edited especially for the project, allow viewers to rethink processes of recovery toward a collective healing, both personal and political.
