Event details

In this Professorial inaugural lecture, Briggs-Goode draws on a chapter from ‘Crafting Anatomies’, a publication edited by Bloomsbury, coming in December 2019.

The title of the presentation is the Archives, Lace and the Body and the paper will reflect upon artistic design practice informed by lace, textile and painting archives, holding hand and machine made textile artefacts, or other visual collections which act as conceptual and creative inspiration.

The paper poses questions about how archives, materials and the body enable us to ask questions about cultural values around gender, sexuality, heritage and identity. Through interpretations of historical styles and motifs centred on fashionable garments, accessories and artworks produced in physical and digital form, that engage with the body ethereally and physically.

These issues are explored through the work of creative practitioners such as Joy Buttress, Cal Lane, Mal Burkinshaw and Danica Maier, and the paper will reflect upon their idiosyncratic approach to lace, materials and the body. This event will be supplemented by an exhibition held in Bonington Atrium which will explore the visual context of the exhibition and show aspects of the archive.
