What is your most cherished piece of clothing? What stories does it hold, and how do you care for it? Artist and fashion scholar Kate Sekules leads a few lucky patrons through a process of storytelling and visible mending, giving new life to beloved garments in need of repair. This interactive experience brings the themes of Conserving Active Matter to a human scale through storytelling, demonstration, and dialogue with exhibition curator Soon Kai PohAnn Coppinger, senior conservator at the Museum at FIT and Sarah Scaturro,  chief conservator at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
