Add event to my calendar

Jungian psychoanalyst Mary Wells Barron explores the archetypal symbolism in the fashion of Alexander McQueen. McQueen’s evocative designs were the focus of recent major exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Victorian and Albert Museum in London.

Barron's talk will illustrate how the Jungian psychological perspective relates to creative expression in McQueen's work. She will present 45 images from Savage Beauty , McQueen's 2011 exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, exploring his "soul clothes" and his creative genius.

Co-sponsored by Jung Cleveland and Cleveland Institute of Art, this free talk will include a light reception and representatives from local fashion and fiber studios. A question and answer session will follow the lecture. Doors open at 6:30pm.
