UNE: Women and Genders Studies Club lunch

During my last meet up at UNE I met Grace Farrington and she introduced my project to the members of the Women's Gender Studies Club.  I was then invited to set up my collaboration studio at their annual event the end of April 2019.
Tarryn and Spencer made paper dolls and I met so many people including Professor DeWolfe who I am looking forward to talking with soon.  Prof DeWolfe and I were both very excited about ideas of how to incorporate Dress Codes into one of her courses.  She teaches American Women's History, and I hope I get to sit in on one of her classes during the semester.
 The event was situated in my favorite location so far at UNE, by the plant wall in Ripich Commons.  I love making students photographs here.  Tarryn Nutt, (also seen below) is an active member of WGSC, her shirt says gay: fine with me. Her brother does her tattoos and she is shown above with her friend Spencer.

I hope to see you there next time I visit. The exhibition will be on display at the K…

Spring 2019

This winter and spring Project: Dress Codes has been in full swing in preparation for the October collaborative exhibition at University of New England in Biddeford, Maine with a residency at Turkey Land Cove Foundation.

April started with a visit to UNE then off to a two week residency at Turkey Land Cove Foundation (photo above) where I was able to have focused time to bring my project together and further develop my ideas. My biggest and most heartfelt thanks to the foundation for this opportunity and another big thank you to all that are helping this project to develop and grow.

Here is a sample of some of the video interviews I have started to collect meet Elais, Grace and Samantha. Please comment in the blog thread.

Just before finals, I will visit UNE as a guest of the Women's and Gender Studies Club setting up a table at their lunch event.

Sunday April 28th, 2019 1-3 See you there!

I will have a table at this event and look forward to more conversations and paper doll making!

On Valentine's Day at the Ketchum Library Gallery, Cally Gurley, Special Collections Librarian and I set up an interactive meet up and I had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people interested in the project: Dress Codes.
During my visit I was able to see more of the beautiful campus, and I am very excited about being creative with UNE including art making, research, photography and to get together to talk about dress, dress codes, identity and culture.  
Tentatively I am schedule for another visit on April 2nd.
