An exhibition at Omaha’s Generator Space looks at the intersection of clothing, the internet and the environment. Amplify Arts’ latest show "@VIRAL_RE_COLLECTION" features works by three artists: Jenna Boyles, Erin Smego and Omaha-born fashion designer Kate Walz. Omaha Public Radio’s Courtney Bierman spoke to the exhibition’s curators, Abby Fogle and Esaú Betancourt.

@VIRAL_RE_COLLECTION is on display through Oct. 16 at 1804 Vinton St. Admission is free but viewings are by appointment only on Thursdays and Fridays. The show also lives largely online for those unable to see it in person. The exhibition page on the Amplify Arts website features a gallery of installation images as well as a virtual tour presented by Fogle and Betancourt.
