Qiana Mestrich, Susan Bright | An Artist Dialogue Series Event

November 22, 2014 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a conversation between artist Qiana Mestrich and curator Susan Bright on how an American chemical company made fashion history and inspired thousands of mothers to name their children after a nylon fabric.

Event is FREE.

This conversation explores the artist’s research into the creation of DuPont’s Qiana® nylon fabric whose branding permeated the African American community in which it became a uniquely popular girl’s name from the late 1960s to early ‘80s. This dialogue is in context with Mestrich’s Inherited Patterns and Necked photo collage work on view as part of Photo Walls in Picture Collection and Art in the Windows exhibitions series.
