Art and Craft Lectures: Janis Jefferies

Art and Craft Lectures: Janis Jefferies

What is the Curatorial Textile, Biennial/Triennial experience? What roles, if any, do such events play in positioning textiles within contemporary visual culture and practice? What are their implications for cultural and social perceptions of the field? And in what way do such events define and stabilize such perceptions?

Janis Jefferies will address some of these questions during her lecture  "Textile Curating-histories, practices, concepts in International Biennials and Triennials"

Janis Jefferies, Emeritus Professor of Visual Arts, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.

Artist, writer and curator Jefferies has pioneered the field of contemporary textiles within visual and material culture, internationally through exhibitions and texts. She has edited numerous books and chapter contributions on textiles, technology, performance and practice research. Jefferies trained as a painter in England, studied in Poland during the Cold War under Magdalena Abakanowicz, and has spent most of her creative life working in art schools and universities primarily in London, sometimes in America, Canada and Australia.

She is co-editor of the Handbook of Textile Culture (2016), wrote the introduction to From Tapestry to Fiber Art. The Lausanne Biennials 1962-1995.
