Catalogue Launch & Talk Event

Featuring Dr Ricarda Bigolin

August 11, 2021

Celebrate the launch of the Kiki Ando: Highest Mountain and Deepest Bay online catalogue with a talk event featuring textile researcher and catalogue contributor Dr Ricarda Bigolin. In her talk, Dr Bigolin will present an overview of the outlier practices between fashion, art and design, particularly in the context of performance, where bodies influence materials to behave and act intuitively, rather than adhering to institutionalised visual arts and design disciplines. By considering the broader conditions around Kiki Ando’s work, her lecture will examine the nuances of such outlier practices.

Please note that the in-person talk event will also be livestreamed on the JPF Sydney Facebook page. An archived recording will be available to view after the event on Facebook and the JPF Sydney YouTube channel.
