He’s very clear to explain, as we step through the two mannequin-stuffed gallery spaces in Chinatown (Ludlow 38 and Mathew Gallery) that he’s using for this sprawling look at fashion from the previous decade, that the show is not meant to be “a survey or an overview.” At least, not in the rigid sense that a historian might use those terms. Rather, he points out, “It’s an anthology, meaning a selection by choice.” The show expresses Linde’s point of view about the hidden forces bubbling beneath the sartorial surface.

It began with 16 men, 16 workstations, and 10,000 roses in Holmdel, New Jersey. For four days, the workers plucked apart each rose, petal by petal, photographing and pressing the ones they deemed most beautiful. Directing this assembly line was artist Sarah Meyohas, best known for Stock Performance (2015), a performance piece where Meyohas painted the trajectories of shares that she traded, in real time, on the New York Stock Exchange
To make a nail polish that is at once dazzling and refined requires finesse. But Shake It, a glittery, multicolored lacquer created as a nod to Warhol by the renowned nail artist Jin Soon, strikes that exact balance. “I was inspired by Warhol’s Factory era in New York City, when he was fascinated with silver,” says Jin.
In 1976 the British artist, musician and founding member of music and visual arts group Throbbing Gristle, Cosey Fanni Tutti, put on the exhibition Prostitution at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, alongside the avant-garde performance art collective that she was then part of—COUM Transmissions—consisting of the musicians and artists Genesis P-Orridge and Chris Carter. It was a retrospective, shown at a time when the band were at the peak of their controversy.
