Prince Studies: Design for Life
Starting date: 16 January 2021 11 am-1 pm, 10 weeks
Tutors: JC Kristensen, Nina Trivedi
Prince Studies offers a unique opportunity to study the artist, musician, performer, filmmaker and icon Prince, and the context in which he lived and worked, using fandom as a method to explore visual and material culture.
Hair, Untold Stories is an upcoming Horniman Museum exhibition which will invite visitors to confront their own relationship to their hair, whilst exploring the many unexpected stories from the local to the global context.
The Museum is looking for six panel members to respond to the narratives/artworks and stories relating to Black hair in the exhibition, the emphasis and tone of voice and to provide recommendations to the Horniman.
Discussions will take place over three Zoom sessions, chaired by Rose Sinclair from the Department of Design at Goldsmiths:
Join Goldsmiths Design researchers, lecturers & alumni Daniella Zlotogoura, Lili Golmohammadi, and Becca Rose Glowacki for an online workshop exploring the idea of curating a shared home museum collection. You are invited to choose an object from your home to share in this workshop.
With many having recently spent more time than ever at home, we explore the objects we find ourselves most drawn to. How do these objects live alongside us? And how might they connect to each other?
The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in being creative – no prior training in design or art required.
