Secondhand Clothing Conversation is an interactive art installation that investigates the global, economic and cultural implication of the secondhand clothing trade. Inspired by both Zambian and American practices of secondhand clothing, this project combines cross-cultural practices to initiate a dialogue about secondhand clothing industry on both a local and global level. This exhibition offers a porthole into a trade that embodies many of the issues and impacts of globalization.

“Carlsbad Park” is a continuation of Johanna Bresnick’s work which investigates the imposition of geometry on nature; the engineering of environments and conditions by means of architecture, economics, time, geopolitics, social behavior, familial structure, or personal code. Using a wide range of materials, Bresnick explores the relationship between natural and artificial forms, as well as, environments. Each work in this series is a facet of that investigation.
Johanna Bresnick lives and works in New Haven, Connecticut.
She received her in M.F.A. in 2001 from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a B.A. in 1995 from Macalester College.
This exhibition celebrates the Westchester County in a show that will be both accessible and engaging for a general audience.
