I would say his fashion practice is art-based
he does a lot of performances/installations/events/sculptures, which don't always follow along w/the fashion calendar, which is why we have this erratic mish-mosh of a thread
i see... thanks a lot cerfas, its really interesting... you and some other broaden my fashion horizons... lol... but really, thank you

Yukinori Maeda is being featured in an upcoming exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, also called Cosmic Wonder

Quote:

Cosmic Wonder
The infinite, the transcendental, the unseen—these are the artistic quests of Cosmic Wonder, an exhibition of metaphysical art that gives colorful expression to the mystical yearnings of a new generation. Guest curator Betty Nguyen identified key young artists who explore trance, “alternative” realities and the psyche, who tap into altered states of consciousness through exaggerated color, mind-altering patterns, morphing forms, and visions of the infinite. Their work is inspired by nature, by the cosmos, by the vastness of the Western landscape, and yet is rooted in an urban sensibility. Cosmic Wonder presents a range of young artists—including Jim Drain and Ara Peterson, alongside their avante-garde, 60s and 70s predecessors such as James Turrell. Call it New Tribalism with edge, or the 1960s refracted through a 21st century consciousness, Cosmic Wonder revels in the wondrous.


Artist list:
Doug Aitken
Jose Alvarez
Reed Anderson
Hanna Fushihara Aron and David Aron
Hisham Bharoocha
Mark Borthwick
Anna Sew Hoy
Sam Gordon
Yayoi Kusama
Terence Koh
Yukinori Maeda
Richard Misrach
Takeshi Murata
Paperrad
Mike Pare
Erik Parker
Ara Peterson and Jim Drain
Arik Roper
James Turrell
Banks Violette
Debora Warner

It is...here are a couple of small-ish pics of his installation (from littlecakes.org).

Pretty silly idea to name the show "Cosmic Wonder," if you ask me - it's really confusing.

^confusing indeed. Almost makes it appear as if it's referring to
Yukinori alone. They should've thought about that a bit more.
Otherwise,it looks like an interesting exhibition. Mark Borthwick too!<br>

Thanks for the pictures droogist

I don't think it's a good name at all, but well I guess it's seperate from the clothing label....

I really want to go to SF and see this, most of the artists are some of my most favorite
