Closing Conversation: History in Costume

SOLD OUT: Saturday, March 30th at 3pm

During the final weekend of Ruth E. Carter: Afro-Futurism in Costume Design, The Charles H. Wright Museum is proud to host our closing conversation with two-time Academy Award winner, Ruth E. Carter. This incredible exhibition, which features over 60 costumes, showcases her immersive process, historical research, and attention to detail. The exhibition has been on display at The Wright Museum since October 2023 and closes on Sunday March 31st. 

In her closing appearance at The Wright, Ms. Carter converses with Dr. Kelli Morgan, Interim Senior Vice President of Exhibitions and Programming. The two will discuss how the African Diasporic archive influences Carter’s work and the ways in which Black people have employed both costume and fashion as resistance. Join us on March 30th at 3pm.
