Celebrate the opening of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams with a behind-the-scenes conversation between Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior women’s collections and the first female designer to helm the house, and trailblazing artist Judy Chicago. The conversation is moderated by Samira Nasr, editor-in-chief of Harper’s BAZAAR, and takes place from within The Dinner Party, the centerpiece of the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Chiuri and Chicago discuss The Female Divine—their collaborative architectural installation that served as the backdrop in Paris, France, for the Dior Haute Couture Spring–Summer 2020 show. Consisting of twenty-one velvet banners with embroidered questions such as, “What if women ruled the world?,” The Female Divine offers a springboard for their dialogue about the intersections of fashion, feminism, and leadership.
