Taking place on Friday the 28th July 2017, the Costume Institute of the African Diaspora is hosting an event with Lucille Junkere talking about her indigo dyeing journey since her residency at the William Morris Gallery. She has recently travelled to Nigeria through a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship where she studied indigo dyeing techniques amongst Yoruba artisans.
Àdírẹ is the Yoruba word for the resist dyed cloth made in Yoruba towns in Nigeria. The cloth functions both as an aesthetic expression and a means of communication, offering a deep insight into Yoruba religion, culture, folklore, and history. Her talk will be illustrated with short videos, photography, music and Lucille’s own indigo work.
WHEN: Friday 28th July 6 – 8pm BST
TIME: 6 pm to 8 pm
WHERE: Rootstein Hopkins Space, London College of Fashion
