Julie Verhoeven in conversation with Iain R Webb
Bath in Fashion: Julie Verhoeven in conversation with Iain R Webb
Thursday 18 April, 7.30pm
Museum Café, Tickets £10/£8 Free for Contemporaries
Julie Verhoeven is an artist and designer whose practice defiantly refuses to apply easy rules of separation. Whether working as an artist, illustrator or designer, the overlap and outcome shares certain commonalities. Amongst these are a certain camp relish on the power of pop culture and a spirit that owes a lot to British culture or punk. Within her work, one often encounters startling or even confrontational images of femininity that could be read as post-feminist.
Verhoeven has collaborated internationally with labels including Louis Vuitton, Versace, Mulberry, H&M and M.A.C. Iain R Webb is a respected fashion writer who has contributed to The Times, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and many more. This talk coincides with the 'Ladies, Let's Rip!' installation at the Holburne and presents a rare opportunity to gain an insight into the world and work of Julie Verhoeven.
