- Dr Rebecca Arnold - The Courtauld Institute of Art
Judith Clark will discuss her forthcoming exhibition (curated with psychoanalyst Adam Phillips) on aspects of The Vulgar to be staged at the Barbican Art Gallery in October 2016. Clark will discuss
curating the, always subjective, subject of taste and how the use of architectural perspective might be used to unsettle a confident narrative.
This series of lunchtime events brings together a roster of invited speakers to talk about their current research, and encourage discussion about dress history now. Each term academics, curators and dress and fashion industry professionals will share their insight and analysis of an aspect of dress and fashion history to provide a platform for new ideas and approaches to the subject.
Taking place over the lunch hour, these sessions are open to all.
