Beginning on Tuesday, November 29th, the FIDM Museum will open its doors to a new exhibition presented by Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) United Artists Releasing.

The Till costumes were designed by costume designer Marci Rodgers and are currently displayed in the “Till: Creating a World of Joy & Resistance” exhibition. Rodgers beautifully recreated the 1950s and relied on color, textures, and silhouettes to help tell the emotional true story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s (Danielle Deadwyler) relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till (Jalyn Hall), who was brutally lynched in 1955 while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. Visitors will see costumes worn by Hall, Deadwyler, and Whoopi Goldberg who was also a producer on Till.

The Women Talking costumes were designed by costume designer Quita Alfred and are currently displayed in the “Women Talking: An Act of Female Imagination” exhibition. Women Talking is a film based on the best-selling novel by Miriam Toews (set for a limited theatrical release in the United States on December 23, 2022) about eight women from an isolated Mennonite colony grappling with a horrific, brutal reality. Alfred was focused on designing the costumes for this film to be authentic and add to the storytelling, even when costumes are not the focal point. Women Talking stars Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, and Frances McDormand.
