Vanessa Beecroft Plans American Apparel Show for Basel

170311011354 american apparel advertising business gallery 01 Vanessa Beecroft Plans American Apparel Show for BaselPerformance artist Vanessa Beecroft plans to use five American Apparel models for a project at Art Basel Miami, reports writer and curator Corinna Kirsch, who obtained a leaked recruitment e-mail.

The project will apparently be staged at an unnamed masquerade gala and the models will be wearing “skin tone micromesh unitards” from American Apparel, along with “$200,000–$3,000,000 [in] jewelry” from Van Cleef & Arpels.

Too bad our American Apparel unitard modeling days are behind us, or we’d be on-board! All expenses will be paid, plus each model receives $300, Basel passes and a $30 per diem.

“Love or hate Vanessa Beecroft,” Ms. Kirsch writes, “at least she pays her performers more than Marina Abramović.”
