fig-2 16/50: Uttering the Spectacle: Exhibition as Score, Costume as Movement

23 Apr 2015

This talk will bring together fashion scholar Marketa Uhlirova, artist Jacopo Miliani and fig-2 curator Fatos Ustek. Staged on the occasion of Jacopo Miliani's solo exhibition at fig-2, the talk will expand on the dynamic relationship between movement, score and body bringing in influences from fashion, cinema and dance. The talk will respond to the choreographic score study of Miliani's, to the seven states of an exhibition displayed over seven days, manifested through the configuration of the mobile wall elements, plexiglass modules, photocopies with a textile component.
