Event

The History of Leopard Print, an Illustrated Lecture with Jo Weldon

Date: Tuesday, May 17th
Time: 7pm
Admission: $10
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

The leopard is an apex predator: powerful, adaptable, and impossible to domesticate. Leopard print is an apex fashion statement: powerful, fluid in meaning, and impossible to ignore. A pattern adapted by nature to help a killer blend in has been adapted by culture to make a fashionista stand out. In this lecture, Jo Weldon discusses the cultural implications of wearing the pattern in the Western world, and the effect of developing technology and agency across class, race, and gender on our options to express ourselves through clothing. The woman wearing leopard print may not be saying she is a predator, but she is making it clear that she is not prey. Come dressed to thrill!

Jo will also be displaying part of her collection of over 100 years of vintage magazine ads featuring leopard print, and a few choice leopard items from her clothing collection.


Proceeds from this event will go to fund the development of Jo's Traveling Museum of Leopard Print and the preparation of her related projects. Information will also be provided on the work of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which tracks the status of vulnerable, threatened and endangered species, how to support them, and how to donate.
