Exhibiting Fashion Symposium: Marie Riegels Melchior "Fashion and Dress Museology"


The Museum at FIT presented Exhibiting Fashion, its twenty-first academic symposium on Friday, March 8, 2019. This symposium explored the history of fashion curating, the different ways fashion is displayed in museum settings, and how national and regional identities influence fashion exhibitions. The symposium was organized in conjunction with Exhibitionism: 50 Years of The Museum at FIT, which commemorated the rich history of the museum, the site of more than 200 exhibitions since the 1970s.
Marie Riegels Melchior is an associate professor in European Ethnology at the University of Copenhagen. She researches contemporary museum processes and is co-editor of Fashion and Museums: Theory and Practice.
