dc.description.abstractThe T-shirt, as it exists in the twenty-first century, is a staple in every wardrobe across the United States. Since it’s rise to popularity in the 1950s, it has been used a symbol of rebellion and dissent of the youth. Politics Through T-Shirts: A History of Protest, is a narrative driven digital exhibition that examines the transformation of the T-shirt from a humble utilitarian garment into a means of protest. It exists as a mediator between fashion and social movements, an exemplifier of the ever changing context of ordinary clothing in North American society. Protest Through T-Shirts demonstrates both the benefits of digital exhibitions as well as its detriments. This thesis addresses the development of fashion curation and the digital methods used to display clothing. The importance of ordinary clothing is becoming more apparent as the apparel industry continues to grow. Clothing is something that connects us all, as the first thing we do every morning is get dressed.en
