Fashion in Transit

Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 8:00am to 5:00pm

Human Ecology Building (HEB)

Fashion in Transit, a new exhibition, explores how clothing, textiles, and accessories affect body movements, transportation infrastructure, and larger fashion trends.  It opens in the Cornell Fashion + Textile Collection, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, and on the Cornell University Library’s digital exhibitions platform on March 30, and is a collaboration with the Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy.  The exhibition is funded by the Cornell Council for the Arts as part of the 2020-21 Biennial theme “SWARM,” which inspired curators to consider fashion’s role in the collective movement of bodies around, across, above and through space. While the physical exhibits are only open to Cornell faculty, students, and staff approved to visit campus (and an appointment is required for the Johnson Museum), we are pleased to invite the public to visit our digital exhibit and attend a special eCornell keynote webinar on April 8 at 1 PM. The exhibit was curated by students Joshua Johnson B.A. ‘21, Mona Maher Ph.D. ‘24, Christine McDonald M.F.A. ‘22, and Kat Roberts Ph.D. ‘23, and advised by College of Human Ecology Professors Denise Green and Rick Geddes, along with Leah Sweet, Lynch Curatorial Coordinator for Academic Programs at the Johnson Museum. 

The Exhibit in HEB is up through May 1. The exhibit at the Johnson is up through April 9 in the Opatrny Gallery.
