FIAF, the French cultural center of New York (and the best place in the city to learn French), welcomes multimedia artist Jessica Sofia Mitrani with a screening of her fashion short Headpieces for Peace. Using graphic prints originally designed by threeASFOUR for their Insalaam Inshalom exhibition in Tel Aviv (2011), the video blurs the line between various religious headgear to clever and humorous effect.
The eleven pieces featured in the film, which won the grand prize in A Shaded View on Fashion Film festival in 2012, will also be on display. The installation is part of a month-long fashion focus at FIAF, which includes talks with Thom Browne and Joseph Altuzarra.
