For this project, the artists sold advertising logo space on two Todd Oldham-designed suits, which they then wore daily for one year while attending public events such as museum openings, fashion shows and parades. Files document the project through photos, posters, invitations, correspondence, video, information on sponsors, news clippings and samples of fabric and logos.
