From the de Young website: "Discover the complex, diverse nature of Muslim dress codes worldwide. The exhibition examines how Muslim women—those who cover their heads and those who do not—have become arbiters of style within and beyond their communities, and in so doing have drawn mass-media attention to contemporary Muslim life. Spotlighting places, garments, and styles from around the world, this exhibition considers how Muslims define themselves—and are defined—by their dress, and how these choices can reflect the multifaceted nature of their identities. The exhibition traverses different religious interpretations and cultures and includes high-end fashions, such as those by Malaysia-based Blancheur; streetwear, such as modest designs from London-based Sarah Elenany; sportswear, such as the burkini; and commissioned garments from both emerging and established designers." This private tour will begin before museum opening hours. We meet at 8:45AM. It will be led by Shira Barnett, a Jungian analyst and de Young docent, who brings an analytic psychology perspective to her interpretation of the works and lives of the artists. Space is limited. Register soon! No Continuing Education Credits are available for this event. This event is offered by The Friends of the Institute and ARAS, The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism
