Summer 2021 Exhibition
Center Stage Series is pleased to partner with the School of Human Ecology for the virtual exhibition, "The Cultural Collection: Fashion or Foul?"
An art installation aimed at educating community members about the ways in which cultural appropriation has been demonstrated in fashion, both couture and ready-to-wear, throughout generations.
By definition, cultural appropriation is the unacknowledged or inappropriate adoption of the customs, practices, ideas or dress of one cultural group by members of another, typically more dominant, people or society. Cultural appropriation is a misrepresentation of traditional cultural experiences, often used in an inappropriate context for humor or costume dress.
