The exhibit is a collection of Art Deco items from various disciplines including industrial design, Art Deco influenced cars, cameras, dishes, buildings to Art Deco influence in fashion desigh paintings, music, and graphic design.
Josephine Baker in film and posters was presented within the exhibit. Hence the banana skirt. I have mixed feeling about seeing Josephine Baker performing her
Le Danse de Sauvage
(Dance of the Savage).
Josephine Baker was an activist in her own right but I wonder if my fellow museum goers know anything about her life and accomplishments.
