31aug01sepFashion, Performance and Photography


Event Details

In the early 20th century, fashion and photography were indelibly wedded through the efforts of a number of photographers, fashion designers, and magazine publishers. Once these cultural power shapers created the form, fashion photography took on a life of its own and became—perhaps always was—art. This art form has since been elevated to heights such that being a fashion photographer can be seen as very important chapter in many well-known photographers’ career: designers rely on them; models request them; magazines use their work: celebrities choose them for shoots; and the power they have to represent others is beyond compare in today’s, 21st century image-driven world.

Following our first Fashion and Photography conference in 2018, we are now including the subject of Performance for the next phase of the project’s evolution, further broadening the interdisciplinary mix and range of potential discussions and activities. Whether dance, theatre, drama theory, directing or performance practice, the different aspects of the performing arts will be explored and developed, especially with the new challenges of technology along with the changes in audiences and performers in the 21st century.

Our Global Fashion, Performance and Photography event will examine the dynamics of all these (and related) fields.
