Fashioning an Exhibition: How Textile Conservators Prepare Christian Dior’s “Junon” for Display (Lecture: Zoom and in-person)

The Textile Conservators for the Fine Arts Museums are responsible for the care of over 22,000 textiles which includes costumes, flat weaves, contemporary fiber art, pile carpets and tapestries. From the moment a textile enters the collection, conservators research and document major events in its life to create a narrative that informs the object’s treatment and preservation.

Using Christian Dior’s evening gown Junon as a case study, this presentation will reveal what conservators do on a daily basis to preserve such treasures in the collection.

A lecture by Beth Szuhay, Anne Getts and Laura Garcia-Vedrenne, conservators of Costume and Textile Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Presented by Textile Arts Council, a curatorial support organization of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
