CASE STUDY

Glasgow School of Art – AWAKEN

Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections Centre recently collaborated with the Fashion and Textiles Department and Centre for Advanced Textiles on the AWAKEN project, examining the conceptual possibilities of reinterpreting archive material for contemporary and future textile-related contexts. Staff from GSA’s Department of Textiles used items from the School’s archives and collections as a starting point for developing new work for an exhibition, publication and seminar which examined the nature and influences of archive material on the creative process.
