Ada Speaking on What to Wear

Who: Marilyn Arsem
When: Tuesday, November 21 at 7:00
Where: Papercuts J.P. - 5 Green Street, Boston


A work-in-progress presentation by Marilyn Arsem, on the dress reform movement of the 19th Century.

Incorporating original texts and letters from the 19th century, this performed lecture/conversation looks at efforts by feminists in Boston calling for rational dress and emancipation from the dictates of fashion.

This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Boston Foundation, through the Live Art Boston program.
