Please join Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA) November 21st, 12-4pm for Molly Surazhsky’s new book Mashacare: Home of the Freaks, Misfits, & Weirdoes.
LACA is pleased to release Mashacare: Home of the Freaks, Misfits, & Weirdoes. This Lookbook draws upon the Mashacare SS19 Collection and uses sci-fi narratives to construct an imaginary floating city named after Surazhsky’s Babushka, Masha. Surazhsky has created and fashioned clothing for Mashacare, a post-glacial future, as a way to envision the inhabitants of a matriarchal and post-capitalist reality.
Text contributions by Scott Benzel, Hailey Loman, and Serena Aurora Day Himmelfarb. Design by Síta Valrún.
