Through an investigation of garments that have helped construct our identities in the 20th and 21st centuries, this session explores the relationship between consumer culture and design. We'll discuss modern fashion as an artistic discipline and reflect on our ability to influence change in the production and distributions systems that dominate contemporary apparel.

This session is led by Tamara Kostianovsky.

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

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
