On Friday 28 October Linda Sandino (CCW/V&A Senior Research Fellow) will chair 'Curating the Future: Imagining Identities' with the speakers Claire Wilcox (Fashion) and Ghislaine Wood (Research Department), both V&A senior curators. The event is part of the TFRC 2011 Open Lecture Series 'Future Textile Identities'. The event wants to inform about the connection between the V&A Museum and the work from TFRC practice-based textile researchers. The Victoria and Albert Museum hosts the work of some TFRC designers, consequently it is part of its collection and part of the cultural history. The curators will speak about how they collect contemporary textiles and fashion and what narrative this suggests for the future. The event will be an opportunity to explore how the V&A maps changing identities in textiles and fashion. Following Linda Sandino’s introduction on the temporality of identity and the Museum, senior curators Claire Wilcox and Ghislaine Wood will reflect on their curatorial projects. Both interior and fashion textiles from the archive will be included in the presentations.
The event will take place from 2 - 5.30pm at the Sackler Centre, Seminar Room 1Victoria & Albert Museum, (Exhibition Road entrance)
The event was fully booked over night, so watch out for further TFRC events!
