  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Fashion Show

 

The Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show features Los Angeles' largest fashion runway show with more than 70 professional models showcasing over 175 fashion designs for women, men and children.  Approximately 800 guests—a creative crowd of leaders in fashion and entertainment—get a glimpse of the future of fashion design from those who invent it—Otis fashion students!   

Featuring the work of the Junior and Senior class, this annual fashion show represents the first milestone for Juniors and the culminating expression of a broad fashion design education for Seniors.  The fashion show demonstrates mastery of skills and knowledge in fashion design created within industry seasonal schedules and standards, aptly preparing students for future success as professionals in the industry.  

The fashion show also serves as a black-tie scholarship benefit event and raises approximately $1 million each year for Otis student scholarships.  Many of these promising young artists and designers (80% of whom require financial aid) would be unable to complete their education without this support.

The Otis Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show is preceded by the Juried Exhibition, which presents student work in the final stages to a selective audience of industry professionals, press, and alumni.  Feedback from the exhibition determines which garments are selected for the show.
