Exploring Materiality: from the Stage to the Print Studio

Issued: Thu, 09 May 2019 09:19:00 BST

The Modernist Methodologies Network are delighted to host a talk by Prof. Christina Young. Christina is a Professor of Conservation and Technical Art History at the University of Glasgow and will introduce her Leverhulme-funded project 'The Power to Transform,' which researches the interdisciplinarity of artists working in the theatre throughout the history of British theatre on painted stage cloths and set-design. Christina will discuss methodological issues faced when researching the highly ephemeral object of the painted stage-cloth, and issues around recreating/reimagining no longer extant objects of cultural history. 

The talk will be followed by a tour of Glasgow Print Studio at 3.30pm, where you will hear from the following practitioners on three different printing techniques: 

Rosalind Lawless (screenprinting) Claire Forsyth (relief printing) Ian McNicol (etching)
