Event description

Description

What do a clay pipe and a monocle have in common? Besides being in the Migration Museum’s collection, these accessories enable an exploration of the relationship between costume and gender, and the ways in which norms around style have been queered in different historical and cultural contexts. Join curator Dr Nikki Sullivan as she delves into these collection connections.

Join us for a lecture series that unpicks the clothes we wear and the styles we inhabit, in everyday life, as performance, and to reveal our innermost selves. From street cred to bed head, queer style is as diverse, colourful and reflective as queer people. Dress to impress? Why not!
