Alabama Chanin produces an exhibition, Ceremony, in collaboration with Robert Rausch and Angie Mosier, in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Inspired by ceremonial rituals across culture and time, the white collection is photographed and, for the first time, an Alabama Chanin presentation and exhibition is shared virtually across the globe.
