Over the past two years, we have been thinking about our programming as interconnected lines of inquiry, learning how exhibitions and programs—not just artworks—can be curated into reciprocal conversation. It is in-between these exhibitions and programs—at their vibrating edges—where new connections are ignited across Agnes’s collections and commissions.
Patterns for All Bodies (PfAB) re-patterns garments from the Dress Collection at Agnes. The patterns are available for free download so that any body can make the clothes, or have the clothes made, for their own body. As part of PfAB, local drag artists re-envision and re-inhabit individual garments. Showing us how it can be done.

Agnes highlights queer, trans and intersex hirstories in the collection. This highlight looks at an architectural wooden relief from the Migratory Collection, providing a marginalized example of gender fluidity within devotional art and a window beyond otherwise suppressed politically religious opinions.
