Curated and organized by Jeffrey Lieber, assistant professor, School of Art and Design History and Theory, the series runs every Tuesday evening from April 6 through April 27. It celebrates the launch of the school’s Master of Arts in Fashion Studies, which places fashion within a contemporary global context.
