“Assemble” asks participants to examine their everyday choices through the lens of ten women and girls living in and around New York. By incorporating multilayered storytelling – including projections and physical objects – through various stages of outfit selection, the installation experience questions our relationship with clothing, our expectations of gender, and our accepted societal norms.
