Xander Marro at the RISD Museum

  • Rhode Island School of Design Museum 20 North Main St Providence, RI 02903 (map)

RISD Museum Artist Fellow Xander Marro presents a series of new graphic works that re-mix garments and textiles swatched from the archive of the Tirocchi sisters, whose dressmaking shop brought Paris fashions to Providence between 1915 and 1947, into repeat patterns. Influenced by the Museum’s exhibition on the Tirocchi shop and its accompanying catalog, Xander’s fellowship allowed her to examine works of art relating to her interests in Providence history, the history of fashion and textile design, female entrepreneurship, and the New England Italian immigrant communities.
