Abstract: From February 3 to April 17, 2020, Collegiate Fashion & Activism: Black Women’s Styles on the College Campus was mounted in Iowa State University’s Textiles and Clothing Museum. In this catalog, we document the entirety of the exhibition and the associated programming. In the catalog Introduction, we first provide an overview of the exhibition. We highlight the 15 Black women who contributed to the exhibition. Two videos are available for view including a short gallery walk through the exhibition and also a film including the Black women featured in the exhibition that was continuously playing in the gallery space. Installation process pictures are available to view and information about the curators are provided.
In Exhibition Vignettes, we include images of the 40 objects featured in the exhibition, introductions to each theme, and detailed object descriptions. Each section is organized around one of the 11 exhibition themes. In Photography, we include all of the large-scale photographs featured on the walls of the gallery along with contextual information for the images. In Scholarship and Public Events, we include information on the programming associated with the exhibition. We first provide a short curator-talk film; information about Kimberly Jenkins, our visiting scholar; and finally all of the events or peer-reviewed research presentations that were completed with this research. In Combating White Supremacy, we explore the ways that we resisted anti-racist discourse in the academy. Lastly, in Exhibition Reviews, we provide the reviews from our museum-experience survey.
