Join Jung Cleveland and The Cleveland Institute of Art in the co-sponsored presentation of "A Tear in the Veil: Beauty and Shadow in the Art of Alexander McQueen."
Jungian Psychoanalyst Mary Wells Barron will present a lecture exploring the archetypal symbolism in the fashion of Alexander McQueen.
In the spring of 2011, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York opened an exhibition titled "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty." This retrospective of the fashion created by McQueen presented archetypal images of astonishing power.
This talk – featuring more than 40 images from Savage Beauty – explores these "soul clothes" and the creative genius of Alexander McQueen.
The free presentation and discussion will include a light reception, including guests from local fashion and fiber studios. A question and answer session will follow the lecture.
