Back by popular demand! We invite you to explore an exhibition from BGC’s past, French Fashion, Women and the First World War, and delve into the dynamic relationship between fashion, war, and gender politics in France during World War I.

Join Geoffrey Ripert, native French speaker and PhD student at Bard Graduate Center, for a tour of this exhibition en français! Ripert’s research interests center on eighteenth-century French decorative arts and the history of collecting. Before beginning his studies at BGC, he was the curatorial assistant for decorative arts at the Frick Collection, he worked for an art dealer in Paris, and he interned at Cooper Hewitt and the Louvre. Ripert holds an M.A. from the École du Louvre, an M.A. from the École Pratique des Hautes Études, and a B.A. from the Sorbonne.
