“Sonia Delaunay and The New Woman” Thursday, April 28 6:30–8:00p.m, The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum
Dr. Sherry Buckberrough, Delaunay scholar and author of Sonia Delaunay: A Retrospective, will discuss Sonia Delaunay as a modern fashion and textile designer and a radical force in shaping the image of the Parisian “New Woman” of the 1920s. Adroitly negotiating dramatic changes in the accepted roles of women, Delaunay fashioned her own public image as both an avant-garde artist and a savvy businesswoman. Buckberrough will illuminate how her designs emphatically deployed the look of modernity across two hemispheres.
Members, seniors $10; Non-members $15; Students are free.
Doors open at 5:30p.m. View the exhibition from 5:30–6:30p.m.!
