Everything Old is Cool Again: Groovy Vintage Fashion from the Ukrainian Diaspora
Not all Museum treasures come from the distant past. This year, we unpacked Mama’s boxes for a nostalgic look back at Ukrainian-Canadian style in the 1960s and ’70s, when embroidery adorned everything from home décor and handbags to the ubiquitous a-line dress.
This lighthearted exhibit features a recreated living room as well as clothing, accessories and household items, set to a backdrop of music from vinyl LPs. The opening reception takes the form of a swinging house party, with prizes for the best Ukrainian-Canadian vintage outfits. Get out your bell-bottoms and join us. It will be fab.
Opening Reception: Friday, September 20, 2019
Exhibitions at the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch reflect the cultural and historic heritage of Canadians of Ukrainian descent, as well as their contribution to the Canadian mosaic.
