Taylor Mac maintains we are “a nation of makers” and that one of his favorite makers is costume designer Machine Dazzle. Machine, whose parents met and married in Pembroke, Maine, will be in residence at the Maine College of Art (MECA) on Congress Street in Portland from September 15th – 19th 2019. His residency includes an exhibition of costumes he’s designed for Taylor’s performances, on display in the Bob Crewe Gallery Windows. Select students from the departments of Textiles and Fashion Design will apprentice with Machine during this residency, co-creating something tangibly extraordinary. During this residency, Machine will also deliver a public lecture as part of the Metalsmithing and Jewelry Departments Lecture series. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a master the intricate ins and outs of over-the-top costume design.
