Join us for a conversation with Swiss artist Elisabeth Masé about her participatory project Das Kleid/The Dress in our upcoming exhibition, how the light gets in.

For the Das Kleid/The Dress project at her Berlin gallery, Masé hosted a series of embroidery workshops for women, including refugees, from a variety of cultural, economic, and educational backgrounds, creating a sense of belonging and shared history. Aspects of Das Kleid will be included in the Johnson’s exhibition, after Masé explores the specifics of Ithaca’s culturally diverse landscape and holds discussions about how a participatory project can reflect and impact the Cornell University and broader Tompkins County communities.

The Museum is open Thursdays until 7:30 PM (February 7–May 2).
