Photos from the opening of Melissa Webb's In A Material World...

Melissa Webb
Melissa Webb's solo show of costumes, characters and installations brought a crowd out to Imperato, many for the first (and maybe only) time. Enlisting dozens of friends to wear the artist's costumes and accessories, gnomes passed around platters of food, ballerinas bartended and the uppity ladies on stilts towered over the gallery-goers. While the opening was the main event, the costume installations and photographs of Melissa's costumes, taken by Uli Loskot, will be on display through September 12.
