| Fabricating Fashion: Curating and Creating Pacific Fibre Arts and Adornments|
July 30, 2013, 11:00 am
This three-day workshop is a rare opportunity for participants to have an immersive museum experience working with internationally established author and Polynesian artist, Rosanna Raymond and PhD candidate, Katrina Talei Igglesden. Over the course of the three days participants will develop their own piece which will then be displayed in the MOA galleries as part of the Paradise Lost? exhibition that takes place simultaneously. Raymond and Igglesden will guide the workshop, providing context, discussion and interactive materials in order to offer a more sensory way of learning, teaching and creating.
First held in conjunction with the London Pacific Fashion Show (2012), the ongoing legacy of this hands-on workshop aims to unlock the often-overlooked notion of creating and displaying pacific fibre arts and adornments. We invite fibre arts enthusiasts, museum professionals, academic researchers, artists, designers and students to explore the contemporary relevance of Pacific fibre arts and textiles, how they relate to the body, how they are cared for and displayed in museums, and how they can coexist within themselves as both animated beings and objects in museum collections. By focusing on and handling specific materials, we hope to explore notions of curation, conservation, cultural heritage and the role that fashion and art plays in each of these.
