Exhibition Galleries, or Zoom, Virtual Program

Participants with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their care partners are invited to join a lively and creative program that encourages creating personal connections to original works of art and each other. Together, we will explore Mood of the moment: Gaby Aghion and the house of Chloé through facilitated discussions and multi-sensory experiences and create art of our own.

This program will be offered in two forms: in-person at the Jewish Museum and over Zoom. Both the in-person and virtual groups will take place at the same time. Please indicate which group you would like to register for.

All Access Programs are free of charge and require advance reservation. Please contact or 212.423.3289 for more information or to register. 

The virtual program is presented with captioning through Zoom. The Jewish Museum is committed to making its virtual programs accessible to all. Please let us know if you need any additional accommodations, including live CART interpretation or ASL interpretation.

About the Exhibition:

This exhibition casts a new light on the label’s 70-year history, featuring garments as well as never-before-exhibited sketches and documents from the Chloé Archive. It showcases Chloé founder Gaby Aghion as a leader whose work altered the course of the global fashion industry in liberating women's bodies from the restrictive attitudes and styles of the time, as well as pioneering the emergence of luxury ready-to-wear. It also features other designers who began their careers with the brand, including Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo.
