Visual artists Natalie Frank and Kirsty Mitchell join Colleen Hill, curator of The Museum at FIT’s exhibition Fairy Tale Fashion, to discuss the use of fairy tale imagery in their work. Frank’s recent exhibition, The Brothers Grimm, featured 25 chalk and pastel drawings. Mitchell’s dreamlike photographs intertwine fantasy, literature, and personal meditations. Organized in collaboration with the Gladys Marcus Library.
