Tribute: Ruth Carter

Ruth Carter Tribute

  •   Black Perspectives

Synopsis

Join us as we pay tribute to Oscar®-nominated costume designer Ruth Carter. Carter has created some of cinema’s most memorable costumes over the last three decades. She’s displayed tremendous range with her playful and provocative work on Spike Lee’s School Daze and Do the Right Thing, her authentic period costumes for Steven Spielberg’s Amistad and Ava DuVernay’s Selma, and her recent Afrofuturist designs for the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther. With remarkable skill and talent, Carter has consistently demonstrated a powerful understanding of the relationship between wardrobe and character.

Award-winning actress and playwright Regina Taylor will lead a wide-ranging conversation with Carter as the acclaimed costume designer reflects on her body of work and opens up about her creative process. Join us for this one-of-a-kind event!
