“White Party” is a formal inspection of the kondura as a design object, blowing up the garment into larger-than-life proportions to celebrate the imported skill and craft inherent in its construction and to inspect the sartorial codes of Khaleeji culture. Using a comically oversized thobe as its centerpiece, “White Party” encourages guests to make their imprint on the art as it deteriorates over time while also considering the invisible hand behind the items we use everyday.
