Curating the Critical Costume 2020 Exhibition: Costume Agency
With Dr. Yuka Oyama, Curator and Artist, Professor for Jewellery Art
at the HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design, University of
Moderated by Sofia Pantouvaki
This talk will present the curatorial vision as well as the making of the “Critical Costume 2020 Exhibition: Costume Agency”. From the beginning, all the members of the “Costume Agency” artistic research project (Christina Lindgren, Sodja Lotker and Yuka Oyama) agreed to create this exhibition without using mannequins or clothes hangers. We aimed to demonstrate the continuingly living inner forces of the costumes to the audiences. One turning point of the curatorial work was the unexpected corona pandemic, which led the exhibition to shift its format from a physical space at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KhiO) in Oslo to a virtual one, launched online on 21 August 2020.
