The Matter of Material symposium, Turner Contemporary, Margate - Thursday 27 April 2017

Freddie Robins will be in conversation with curators, Day + Gluckman to discuss Unpicking the narrative: difficult women, difficult work at The Matter of Material symposium.

The Matter of Material symposium is hosted by Turner Contemporary in collaboration with the International Textile Research Centre University for the Creative Arts. Other speakers are Prof. Lesley Millar, Entangled: Threads & Making curator Karen Wright, Shelly Goldsmith, Dr. Catherine Dormor, Prof. Catherine Harper, Dr. Maxine Bristow and Dr. Beverly Ayling-Smith.

Held alongside the exhibition Entangled: Threads & Making, this conference brings together academic researchers, makers and curators to discuss the role of textiles in contemporary art practice. The Conference will discuss the use of fabric in art, how textile can be seen as a piece of beautifully designed cloth; as contributing to the expanded field of textile art; or be appropriated for a particular work. Cloth is a universal material we love it and understand it, yet we overlook, and sometimes dismiss it as (im)material.

WAL App released on Apple App Store

WAL App released on Apple App Store

Freddie Robins is one of seven female artists featured on the new WAL App developed for the Women’s Art Library (located in the Special Collections and Archives of Goldsmiths Library, University of London).

The WAL App is part of a research project called How to Make an Archive Travel, led by Dr. Ana-Maria Herman. The project aims to make digitised materials from the Women’s Art Library archive ‘travel’ outside the Library’s walls and to perform a digital intervention by making women artists, their work and archives (more) visible.

(Please note that the App was designed for the iPhone 5 device, but can be downloaded on other Apple devices such as the iPhone 6 and iPads.)
