The Spring 2019 evening lecture series will highlight the wide-range of the Avenir Museum’s current exhibitions, as well as guest presenters on unique subjects. Everyone is welcome to attend this intriguing array of textile topics throughout the semester.
January 31 – She Adores Dior: An Evening with Florence Müller
Florence Müller, Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and Fashion at the Denver Art Museum (DAM) since 2015, is the creative force behind the current DAM exhibition Dior: From Paris to the World, which the Avenir Museum will be sending a group to visit in February. The exhibit surveys more than 70 years of the House of Dior’s enduring legacy and its global influence.
Müller’s first collaboration with the DAM was as the chief curator for the 2012 Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective exhibition for which the DAM was the exclusive U.S. venue; most recently, Müller curated the 70 year retrospective Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams, in her former museum in Paris, UCAD/Louvre. She joins us at CSU’s Avenir Museum to speak about her experiences curating exhibitions of Dior couture around the world.
