Season Launch Reception
Thursday 2 May 2019

Stepping Out proposes outfits and accessories that one might imagine worn to an art museum, perhaps to an exhibition opening, a children’s event, or on a Sunday afternoon. Drawing upon the Queen’s University Collection of Canadian Dress, clothing from the 1890s to 1970s intermingles as display with contemporaneous works of art. From talented unknown makers to the hats of Lily Jamon and dresses of Zandra Rhodes, the exhibition highlights objects that have never been shown, stepping through the gallery spaces.
