CENTRAAL MUSEUM

Utrecht, the Netherlands

 

Creating a High-Fashion Exhibit  How does the Internet affect global fashion? That was the key question behind this exhibit, “Global Fashion/Local Tradition.” Using audio, video, and other media, SZI gave visitors a world tour of fashion, from African tribal dress to Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano.

MUSEUM BOIJMANS VAN BEUNINGEN 

Utrecht, the Netherlands

 

Producing a Gala Event  This museum’s first gala had a clear goal: to fundraise. SZI totally embraced the museum's Surrealist theme, creating a giant eyeball to float in the fountain; a cocktail party in a frosted nylon bubble; and a dinner with servers offering bread from birdcages.
