Join Professor Denise Green, Director of the Cornell Costume & Textile Collection, and her student curators for a conversation about Cornell’s groundbreaking fashion exhibition WOMEN EMPOWERED: Fashions from the Frontline.
From activists and politicians, to artists, designers, athletes, scientists, organizers, mothers, and everyday unsung heroes, WOMEN EMPOWERED explores how women, past and present, have strategically and persistently used fashion to empower and uplift. In this live, interactive webcast, you’ll have an opportunity to go behind-the-scenes to learn about the curatorial process, see the garments and accessories from the exhibit, and ask questions of the curatorial team.
