Are you interested in storytelling, fashion, and exhibitions? Are you an aspiring curator, designer or visual merchandiser? Have you been involved in previous “Staten Island Mode” workshops and have an interest in contributing to the next phase of this project? In this workshop, using garments, images and other props, we’ll consider how artifacts can be interpreted and arranged to tell different types of stories about fashion and identity on Staten Island.
WHEN: September 1 | 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
WHERE: Cottage B at Snug Harbor
ADMISSION: Free | Registration requested here
At these workshops, curators Alexis Romano and Jenna Rossi-Camus will introduce the Staten Island Mode project and invite you to contribute your voices, images and memories to an archive that will be presented in an exhibition at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art in 2023.
