Dressing Identity: A Multimedia Experience

November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Fiber Sculptures by Nastassja Swift

Dressing Identity: A Multimedia Experience
From the North Atlantic to Leigh Street with Nastassja Swift

Join the Valentine’s Natalie L. Klaus Curator of Costumes and Textiles, Kristen E. Stewart, and Richmond fiber artist Nastassja Swift for an evening of performance and discussion.

Swift will present a dance performance featuring her larger than life wool masks, followed by a mini-documentary exploring her project “Remembering Her Homecoming,” a collaborative work that features Black women and girls as they dance, sing and shape an experience of storytelling and history, using some of Richmond’s racially historic spaces as a backdrop.

Following the performance and screening, a conversation between the artist and curator will explore the themes of claiming, interpreting, and sharing identity in Swift’s work and in the Valentine’s exhibition Dressing Identity: Caring for Collections and Understanding Ourselves.

Cost: $10/per person; free with valid Student ID
