Fashion and Womanhood: A History of Agency, Oppression, and Intersectionality
APRIL 2022 – NOVEMBER 2022 / MARY ALICE GALLERY
This exhibition analyzes the ways politics, social norms, and formal dress codes within the Western world have influenced women’s expressions of identity through fashion. It will explore how agency, oppression, and intersectionality affect women’s negotiations of their identity through dress from the 16th to 21st centuries.
Curated by Ginger Stanciel, MS student in Apparel Merchandising and Design and the Agatha Huepenbecker Burnet endowed graduate teaching and research assistant at the ISU Textiles and Clothing Museum.
