In Salvage 3.1: Fashion, the  Object Cultures Project  continues its exploration of  the art and practice of salvage  by asking how and whether the ubiquity of the vintage, the retro, and the cyclically recurrent in fashion reanimates or revises regimes of value. We also consider how those reanimated styles impact the meanings attached to salvaged materials themselves and what they might teach us about the wider promise and peril of salvaging.  In partnership with the Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory (3CT), UChicago Arts, the Adelyn Russell Bogert Fund of the Franke Institute for the Humanities, the Art History Department, the Office for Civic Engagement, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and MODA at Chicago.
