ARTrageous, which runs September through December, is an event created by Bloomingdales, in collaboration with the New Museum of Contemporary Art and Vanity Fair, to bring fashion and artists together. Participating artists include: Michelle Handelman, Hermann Nitsch, Mika Ninagawa, Jason Hackenwerth, and Jean Claude Wouters.
Michelle Handelman's work will be featured in the windows of Bloomingdale's for two weeks in October along with Bloomingdale's Y.E.S. Collection. Inspired by classic myths, '60s trash cinema, and pop aesthetics, Handelman makes confrontational works that explore the sublime in its various forms of excess and nothingness.
