Notorious cross-dresser and ceramicist, British artist Grayson Perry has curated an exhibition at The British Museum, his own works with works and trawling the depths of the archives of the museum to find works which celebrate the history of crafts from throughout the ages.
LCC students will be representing their College through workshops, activities, performances and installations inspired by Grayson Perry’s work and in particular his current exhibition, The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman.
Oliver Binnian, a BA Graphic & Media Design Illustration student, is running a screen printing workshop and has also designed the identity for the event (pictured).
The BA Surface Design course have all picked an object from the Museum’s collection for inspiration and will display their pieces next to said objects to create a Surface Design trail for visitors to explore on the night.
BA Book Arts students, Nancy Fleischhauer and Mina Bach, are drawing upon their love of books to present an installation in the Enlightenment Rooms – one of the oldest and grandest rooms in the Museum where the walls are lined in book cases. They will be lighting the marble statues with coloured lights that emit from open books.
Finally, for the first time ever at the museum, there will be a silent disco and through his work with Arts Radio London, LCC BA Journalism student Felix Clarke will be one of the DJs entertaining the masses.
