Virtual Lecture | Museo del Traje: A Journey Through the Collections
September 16 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT$10
Elvira González Asenjo, curator, Museo del Traje, Centro de Investigación del Patrimonio Etnológico
The Museo del Traje (Spanish National Museum for Fashion) in Madrid is Spain’s premier museum of historic dress and fashion. While the institution was only founded recently, in 2004, its core collection has a much longer history, dating back to the influential 1925 exhibition, Traje Regional e Histórico (Regional and Historic Dress). Since that time, and over the course of the collection’s history, it has changed names many times but has also developed considerably in breadth and diversity. This lecture will tell the story of the Museo del Traje and its holdings.
$10. Free for members and SMU faculty/staff/students.
This program is sponsored by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain.
