Please RSVP by November 9. Limited tickets available day of event.
Explore the fascinating history of fashion one day at a time as historian, curator, and journalist Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell presents her new book, Worn On This Day: The Clothes That Made History (Running Press). Beginning on January 1st (with a pair of New Year's outfits from the Phoenix Art Museum's collection) and ending on December 31st, Worn On This Day looks at garments worn on monumental occasions across centuries and continents, offering capsule fashion histories of everything from space suits to wedding gowns, sports uniforms, coronation robes, and armor. In every case there is a newsworthy narrative behind the garment, whether famous and glamorous or anonymous and humble. Prominent figures like Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, and the Duchess of Cambridge are represented alongside ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events.

One of the UK’s best known artists, Martin Creed won the Turner Prize in 2001 with The Lights Going On And Off. His work is exhibited across the globe including many works involving live music, dance and the use of words —in the form of word-sculptures, talks and songs. Most recently he has been working on a new one-person show, "Getting Changed”, which is part-talk, part-concert, part-cabaret. It is the follow-up to the show "Words & Music" which he did at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and has played around the world. Some of the themes of the new show are borders both personal and national, communication in the form of clothes, and words as clothes for feelings, all put together live in Martin's responsive freestyle way.
