It brings together the considerable variety of activities which includes examples of analogue and digital processes, live performance, film and installation.
The event will include: an introduction by Charlotte Hodes, Professor in Fine Art; a key note by Colin Wiggins, Special Project Curator; presentations by artists and fashion designers Dr. Jessica Bugg and Simon Thorogood, Senior Research Fellow, costume designer Agnes Treplin, and fashion curator Dr. Flavia Loscialpo, Senior Lecturer at Southampton University. Refreshments will be provided.
