One Size Fits All is a one-night exhibition that features works by contemporary artists whose work in some manner embodies the attitude and character of the music of Frank Zappa. The impetus for arranging this exhibition was taken from Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention’s 1975 album by the same name. The album One Size Fits All played a critical role in conceiving this exhibition, serving as a model by which to select work that incorporates a similar aesthetic audacity, humorous surprise, technical virtuosity, and confrontational character as the music. Although the term One Size Fits All may suggest notions of universality, it may also recall the marketing of elastic underwear and other such meanings that are welcome in the context of this exhibition.
