The Arts and Humanities Research Council has awarded Dr Jeffrey Horsley (Centre for Fashion Curation, LCF) £202 766 towards a project investigating fashion exhibition-making in UK museums. The practice-based research aims to develop a ‘toolkit’ that will equip non-specialist curators in small and mid-sized museums to create innovative fashion displays. Curatorial staff at Manchester Art Gallery (Manchester), the Beecroft Art Gallery (Southend) and Bankfield Museum (Halifax) will be collaborating partners on the project. Co-Investigator Angela Piccini (University of Plymouth) will work alongside Dr Horsley, using participant-focussed film-making techniques, to document live the practices of exhibition-maker and curators. The project will support production of fashion exhibitions at each partner’s venue and will run from winter 2021 until Spring 2024.
