T-shirt: Cult - Culture – Subversion.

T Shirts: Cult - Culture – Subversion exhibition, Fashion and Textiles Museum, London

04 Apr 2018


Join co-curator of T-SHIRT: CULT – CULTURE – SUBVERSION Jenna Rossi-Camus for a look at the process behind devising and realising the exhibition for the Fashion & Textile Museum and the Civic Barnsley. The talk will focus on the development of the exhibition’s themes in response to current events and the inclusion of items of personal significance to the curators. The exhibition, and this reflection upon its process are integral to Jenna’s approach to curating projects that open up dialogues and activate fashion thinking.

Jenna will also discuss her career trajectory, and how each of her educational and professional experiences has contributed to her current practice up to and including her PhD exploring fashion satire, Horace Walpole and site-responsive exhibition-making.

Jenna Rossi-Camus is a London-based fashion curator and exhibition designer, currently working towards a PhD exploring Fashion and Humour at the Centre for Fashion Curation (LCF). As assistant curator of the Design Museum’s exhibition Women Fashion Power, she crafted the timeline display of women’s history and fashion history in tandem. Prior to her post at the Design Museum, Jenna curated Moving Textiles: Digital Encounters at the Herbert Reade Gallery and Browns 40 Years of Fashion Innovation, and contributed to Diana Vreeland After Diana Vreeland (Venice, 2012), The Simone Handbag Museum (Korea, 2012), and Britannia 1951-53 (Selfridges, 2012). She has worked in the dress collections of the Museum of London and the Museum of the City of New York and was a founder of the Beyond Retro Vintage Textile Archive. She holds an MA in Fashion Curation from London College of Fashion.
