Memory Threads

A research group exploring ideas around memory and textiles

NEXT GROUP MEETING 2nd September: Memory and Objects

Due to summer holidays (and hopefully more sunshine), we don’t have a meeting planned for August. The next group meeting will be held on 2nd September. 10.30 – 12.30 (room TBC).

It will be an informal meeting open to all postgraduate UAL students, based loosely around the theme: Memory and Objects.
This will be a timely discussion, connecting ideas around a workshop Memory Threads will also be attending on the 28th Sept at Tate Britain (see below).

MEMORY THREADS OUTING 28th September: Tate Britain Objects and Memory Workshop

28th September 2019. 13.00 – 15.00.

This participatory workshop takes inspiration from Mike Nelson‘s current Tate Britain Commission The Asset Strippers,

We would love you to join us, although unfortunately, we do not have funding to offer free tickets. It is £7 for students; please do book your ticket soon if you would like to join us!

Further info from the Tate website:
‘Taking inspiration from Mike Nelson‘s Tate Britain Commission The Asset Strippers, learn more about the cultural significance of material change. The workshop will echo the themes of Nelson’s practice by using objects from the past to try and better understand the future. The session will be led by Caitlin Desilvey, Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of Exeter, exploring the different ways materials produce memories.’


As spaces are limited for this workshop, we recommend that if you are interested, please book ASAP.

If you haven’t already, we also recommend visiting the Mike Nelson installation at Tate Britain.
