ICA Artist Talk: Proenza Schouler Designers

ARTIST TALK

Proenza Schouler

Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez met while studying at the Parsons School of Design in New York and launched their distinctive clothing brand Proenza Schouler shortly thereafter. Notable for an intriguing and inventive use of fabric, their designs are inspired by influences ranging from the Himalayan region of Nepal; the coy urban youth culture of New York; and artists Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, and Gerhard Richter. Since launching in 2002, Proenza Schouler has received an extraordinary number of accolades and awards, including the coveted CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year Award three times, most recently in 2013. McCollough and Hernandez will discuss their designs and inspirations with Helen Molesworth, Barbara Lee Chief Curator.
