All of Everything: Todd Oldham

Posted by Library Blog on 07/08/2016 at 09:58 AM

Todd Oldham is an iconic 90s American fashion designer. According to Vogue Magazine, “in his 10 years in the atelier, Oldham had done everything from embroider with actual hammered gold to turn a photograph of a flaming tuna can into a print for Naomi Campbell to wear on the runway.” (To see a snippet of a Todd Oldham runway show in all of its 1990s glory, click here!)

This Summer, a retrospective of Todd Oldham’s works are being featured in Providence at the RISD Museum and it is not to be missed!

Featuring more than 65 pieces, this exhibition is fun, funky and fashionable. It is the first solo exhibition devoted to Oldham’s work and also features twenty hours of runway footage.

If you haven’t already been to the RISD Museum, you should visit as it features significant contemporary art works (Warhol, Lichtenstein, etc.) as well as a large collection of textiles. Also currently on display in the RISD Museum are the works of Jesse Burke.

If you need a break from the amazing art and design, the museum just opened Café Pearl, located inside the museum’s Benefit Street entrance.  You can also take a few minutes and enjoy the RISD Museum’s outdoor space, the Radeke Garden!
