“When Balaklava goes Orange: Pussy Riot and the Fashion of Protest”
(7:20 PM - 9:00 PM)
Lecture by Dr. Alla Myzelev
Sponsored by: Art History Division, Art History Club, Foundations Division, and the Women's and Gender Studies Program
After the fall of the USSR traditional roles of masculinity and femininity in Russia had gone through significant re-evaluation. In the early 2000s, less rigid forms of gender identities evolved and prospered for some time. Now we are witnessing the turn to more conservative values in Russian culture. Dr. Myzelev’s talk will test this trajectory of gender function using both masculine and feminine fashion. She will be looking at the two successful designers of male fashion to understand how an understanding of masculinity had changed in the twenty-first century. Then she will turn to the well-known in the West group Pussy Riot and attempt to analyze the reasons for their two-year imprisonment through the lens of gender identities.
Alla Myzelev is an Assistant professor of Art History and Museum Studies at the State University of New York at Geneseo and has published extensively on feminism, activism, and material culture. She is the author of Architecture, Design and Craft in Toronto 1900-1940: Creating Modern Living (Ashgate 2016); Exhibiting Craft and Design: Transgressing the White Cube Paradigm (Routledge, 2017); and is currently writing a manuscript, contracted by Routledge, on the politics of fashion in the Soviet Union. Myzelev has also curated several shows including the yearly Feminist Art Conference International exhibition in Toronto (2014-2017).
