Panel: "Confounding Expectations: Elements of Style"

  • The Auditorium, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

From The New School:

The Aperture "Elements of Style" panel is part of the Confounding Expectations lecture series, which is sponsored by Aperture Foundation, the Vera List Center at The New School, and the Photography Program of Parsons School of Design at The New School.

This conversation will focus on identity, style, and dress―the codes and politics of self-presentation. Panelists will discuss connections between self-portraiture and self-styling, decolonizing the fashion image, and the role of the queer archive in the fashion industry. The conversation will be moderated by historian and author Tanisha C. Ford.

Participating panelists include Collier Shorr, Nadine Ijewere, and Ethan James Green.
