This event is FREE but we strongly recommend you RSVP to reserve a seat.

FIT Assistant Professor Justine De Young will discuss her new book, Fashion in European Art, with MFIT director Valerie Steele. Illustrated with a lavish array of images, their conversation will range over topics such as fashion, art, and politics; the controversy surrounding mannequins and monkeys; and sexual identity in men’s portraiture. You will never look at paintings like Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte the same way again. A book signing will follow the conversation.
