Curation: Fashion in Context
22nd January, Nordic Embassies, Berlin, Germany
A series of panel discussions which looks at how, where and why fashion is curated in contemporary culture, and at the practices and challenges of teaching critical fashion curation.
At this time, when fashion is increasingly entering galleries and museums, when shops and boutiques are being transformed into curated spaces, and individuals are being encouraged to curate their appearance, a critical discussion is timely. In the context of the BOUTIQUE exhibition at the Nordic Embassies and Berlin Fashion Week 2016, three panels of experts discuss the aims, functions and practices of contemporary fashion curation. In doing so they question the spaces and places, cultural and critical contexts, and the research and teaching of fashion curation, today and going forward.
The panels bring together an internationally recognized group of curators, teachers and researchers, among others:
Hazel Clark | Parsons School of Design, The New School, New York
Antonella Giannone |Kunsthochschule Weißensee, Berlin
Marco Pecorari |University of Stockholm/ Parsons School of Design, The New School, Paris
Marie Riegels Melchior | University of Copenhagen
Simona Segre Reinach | Bologna University
Leena Svinhufvud | Design Museum Helsinki
Annamari Vänskä | Curator, Helsinki
