The iconic objects in Items: Is Fashion Modern range from the white T-shirt to the little black dress - via , hoodies, and hijabs. What they all have in common is a deep embeddedness in larger social, political, economic, and cultural contexts both past and present. In this session, we will unpack a selection of "items" as examples of a richly layered material culture.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
