Company Information

THE CONCEPT
Did you know that over $20 billion worth of clothing sits in women’s closets that has never been worn (yes, with tags still on) and that the woman never will wear?

At the same time, there’s more and more pressure on every woman in society to wear something she’s never been seen in before. Between the sharp eyes and perfect memories of her friends and acquaintances, the broad exposure and permanent imprint of social media, and a woman’s own desire for that fantastic feeling of debuting an outfit for the first time, it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Until now.

With Relapse, there’s finally something that makes sense to do with that amazing dress you wore once to an event that everyone saw you in, or that item you bought on sale, never wore, but now you realize it doesn’t quite fit. If you took it to a consignment store, you’d only get pennies on the dollar.

But with Relapse here’s what happens.

You contribute a dress to the collective of women like you. You feel good knowing that you’re not letting the dress go to waste. In return you receive a new-to-you dress of equivalent value to what you sent in. A dress that has been hand selected to your bespoke style preferences by your own personal stylist. And when you’re finished with that dress you can send it back in for another. . . and then another, and another.

You will have turned one dress you no longer wish to wear into an endless supply of new-to-you pieces.

THE CAUSE

Over $100 billion worth of clothing sits in women’s closets that will never be worn again (in the US and the UK alone). That’s about half of what’s in her closet in total. Most of those items were only worn for about 4 weeks before being removed from her rotation.

And we all love fashion, but live with the sad knowledge that the fashion industry is the #2 polluter of any industry on the globe, second only to big oil. 13 million tons of clothing ends up polluting the earth in landfills. . . every year.

Now there are a lot of things in the world we’d love to change for the better. Many require quite a sacrifice.

With Relapse not only can we live a better, more sustainable lifestyle, but we can do it and benefit at the same time. Rather than having anything in our closet that we’re not going to wear again, we can contribute those pieces to a collective of women like us and gain access to a shared, infinite closet that we can pull from as many times as we like.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR CURATORS

No Longer Empty’s mission is to widen the audience for contemporary art, to promote socially conscious artists, and to build resilience in communities through art. We do so by presenting professionally curated, site-specific art exhibitions where a community of artists, educators, scholars and the public come together to create and experience art, free of market imperatives and institutional constraints.

No Longer Empty draws together the vitality of the contemporary art world and the values of building community.

The NLE Curatorial Lab (NLE Lab) is a professional development program giving curators an opportunity to build upon their existing knowledge and gain first-hand experience and support in developing, staging and evaluating a site-responsive exhibition. This program, expanding upon No Longer Empty’s mission, offers curators a new platform for debate, exploration, and experimentation in curatorial practices. The NLE Lab reinforces the role of the curator and encourages new interdisciplinary projects with special emphasis on site-specific practice and community engagement.

No Longer Empty’s supportive networks and the vast creative environments in New York City provide participants with the resources to deeply explore and develop new curatorial concepts. These 21st century curators will emerge with the tools to conduct community research and engagement, work adeptly with artists, be communicative and collaborative, and create welcoming contemporary art experiences for visitors. The program, offered in the spring and fall, is open to local and international emerging curators. Each session is supervised by NLE Chief Curator Manon Slome and an established curator.

University degree required.
The Application process is open, and the deadline for the Fall 2014 Session is August 8th, 2014.
