I had the chance to address this issue when curator Kathleen Reckling invited me to participate in an important exhibition called “SHE: Deconstructing Female Identity.” I selected fifty outfits from my closet, and I brought them to the site of the exhibition – ArtsWestchester Gallery in White Plains, NY. After hanging my clothes on the wall and on a clothes rack, I was ready to present an interactive performance called “You are what you wear.” At the opening reception and on two other occasions, I invited gallery visitors to select different outfits for me to wear. Each time that I changed my clothes, I asked a few people to share their impression of me. I found that these responses varied dramatically, according to the type of clothing that I was wearing. This may not be surprising, but it is worth thinking about! I am the same person, but people will respond to me in radically different ways – according to my attire. These folks are judging a book by its cover!
