From Vaseline on the lens to Photoshop, in association with Panel, Fiona Jardine, Sophie Dyer and Maeve Redmond, this event will examine the politics of photographic enhancements within advertising from the 1950s to the present day.

Set within The Persistence of Type exhibition at Tramway, Soft Focus responds to the influence of the photographic image and type through primary investigation into local graphic design history – from Post Office records and private archives to collected magazines and micro filmed newspaper.

Focusing on a range of examples, from Tennent’s Lager lovelies to the figure of the airhostess within British Caledonian Airways promotional material, Fiona Jardine discusses the development of photographic manipulation introduced by Mairi MacKenzie, highlighting key campaigns, which have informed The Persistence of Type exhibition.

Libérez le Glamour de Beverley Hills

Clara Ursitti — Intervention

More...

This intervention takes place during The Beauty Project.

Clara Ursitti’s work is often invisible. She prioritises the non-visual senses, and has been working with fragrance since the early 1990’s creating installations and interventions that delve into the social and psychological aspects of scent. She plays with what smells good, what smells bad and odours that don’t fit neatly into either category; dichotomies that are culturally informed and subjective.

For Fashion Cultures, Ursitti will choreograph a fragrant intervention during The Beauty Project talk and screenings.

Hair may be mere matter growing naturally from our bodies, yet we believe its shaping can shift our destinies – let’s face it, a poor haircut can blight the next six months. Whether curled, dyed, shaved or straightened, hair remains a potent force and there are many definitive moments in its history. Caroline Cox will trace the chronology of hair fashion throughout the 20th and 21st centuries placing the featured cuts, colours and techniques in their cultural context.

Caroline Cox is an international authority on fashion history and works as a International Trends Advisor for Sassoon Academy as well as lecturing and broadcasting throughout the world. Her books on fashion history have been published internationally and for her outstanding contribution to Cultural History, Caroline was awarded an Visiting Professorship at the University of Arts, London.
