  • Missouri History Museum 5700 Lindell Boulevard St. Louis, MO, 63112 United States (map)

Presented by the Missouri History Museum | Lee Auditorium | Free

What can we learn from cloth? How can art and fashion intersect to tell stories about colonialism, gender inequality, and cultural exploitation? Yvonne Osei, a German-born Ghanaian artist, explores these themes in her performance art piece, Africa Clothe Me Bare, and other works. Join Osei, a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow, Olin Fellow, and graduate teaching assistant at Washington University, as she discusses her creative research, her projects, and the meaning behind her work.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Little Black Dress: From Mourning to Night
