In America: An Anthology of Fashion
Key features include men and women’s dress dating from the eighteenth century to the present featured in vignettes installed in select period rooms spanning ca. 1805 to 1915: a Shaker Retiring Room from the 1830s; a nineteenth-century parlor from Richmond, Virginia; a panoramic 1819 mural of Versailles; and a twentieth-century living room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, among others!
The exhibition will reflect on these narratives through a series of three-dimensional cinematic “freeze frames” produced in collaboration with notable American film directors! These mise-en-scènes will explore the role of dress in shaping American identity and address the complex and layered histories of the rooms!
