Cori Champagne MFA '08

My work addresses the climate crisis from a logistical point of view. It imagines that abrupt circumstances could be prepared for and solutions developed for the needs of shelter, mobility, and protection – and that clothing worn could transform and provide it.

Cori Champagne MFA '08 opens Let’s never do this again on June 8 at the Boston Sculptors Gallery

Join Cori Champagne MFA ’08 to view Let's never do this again, opening today (June 8) at the Boston Sculptors Gallery. Viewers are invited to explore a series of handmade, transformational clothing designed to meet the needs of a shifting world. Each exhibited piece seeks to address contemporary disasters from climate change to grid failures.

Wildfire Go Suit (pictured above) presents a wearable version of a ‘go bag’: easy to put on/take off coveralls that hold a hand-made tent, phone charger, and first aid kit. Responding to forest fires in the western US, the piece also includes large infographics illustrating items and where they are stored.
