MFA in Visual Studies Alumni Angélica Maria Millán Lozano and maximiliano featured in Willamette Week!
September 18, 2018
From the Bins to the body, MFA in Visual Studies alumni Angélica Maria Millán Lozano and maximiliano have co-constructed an outrageous and magical conceptual fashion project, Cvllejerx, which has been featured at PICA's TBA Festival, honored with residencies at spaces like c3: and now profiled in the Willamette Week. https://www.wweek.com/arts/fas...
Think "nets like chain mail....gold lace veils with zippers to expose the models' eyes, and chunks of soccer net that draped over the back of their heads."
"If we question if a thing can be a garment," says Millán Lozano, "that is usually the best garment."
Cvllejerx (pronounced "kuhl-yuh-HEHR-ex") is not exactly a fashion line. It's sold a few clothes through its guerrilla fashion shows, but has no retail platform or commercial ambitions. All of its materials are up-cycled, and neither Maximiliano nor Millán Lozano has any formal seamster training. Their shows are more like a communal, riotous game of dress-up. There is no runway, and the models style themselves from a heap of clothes Millán Lozano brings in a suitcase.
Be sure to see MA Critical Studies Student, Jason Le, moderate Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson's discussion of their performance, Make Banana Cry!
The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies is happy to present a panel discussion with scholars Christopher Ian Foster + Carmen P. Thompson!

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will be at GMA Architects, where Miller’s ongoing exhibition serves as a backdrop for the talk.
