St. Francis College: Fashion Evolution - From Environmental Injustice to Eco Solution
Virtual event by St. Francis College.
The Evolutionary Studies Collaborative, the English Department, and the Interdisciplinary Studies Department of St. Francis College are sponsoring a virtual lecture and workshop with Milena Popov, a multimedia artist and scholar.
This workshop will look into how materials, techniques, and processes used in the fashion industry have changed over time and have gradually caused more and more environmental problems and injustices, but are also changing again in order to provide eco solutions. The spectrum of sustainable fashion types, including cyborg fashion, will be explored, and several examples of DIY garments and jewelry will be on display.
Milena Popov teaches eco art and design, as well as interdisciplinary sustainability and environmental justice courses at The City University of New York, and she is a founding member of the Environmental Justice Minor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Popov has a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies and an MFA and a BFA in Painting and Art Education.
