Cuban American designers Ruben and Isabel Toledo are in Columbus this week installing Bodies@Work, a unique fashion and design exhibition original to Columbus Museum of Art, and only showing in Columbus. The exhibition features Isabel’s remarkable fashion designs that combine innovation of form, material and structure with a keen practicality and Ruben’s vibrant drawings and paintings, many of which are new and original to the exhibition.
The artists have been transforming the Geraldine Schottenstein Gallery in the new Walter Wing into an evocative exhibition that tells the story of their lifelong partnership in art, design and life. Bodies@Work officially opens in Columbus on October 8. Here are a few exclusive behind the scenes pics of the exhibition installation.
