Fashion Symposium: Pink
October 19, 2018 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Museum at FIT presents Pink, its 20th academic symposium. This symposium will explore the significance of the color pink in fashion, art, and culture. Pink provokes exceptionally strong feelings of both attraction and repulsion, yet it is increasingly being regarded as cool and androgynous, powerful and political. Topics will include the significance of pink clothing in Western and non-Western cultures (including India, Africa, Mexico, and Japan), the role of pink in 18th-century portraiture, associations of pink with politics, gender, and sexuality, and the use of pink in cinema.
Please note that seating will be on a first come, first served basis, with RSVP.
This event is open to the public.
