Real Dirty Blue

Brock, Philippa (2016) Real Dirty Blue. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Brock, Philippa

Philippa Brock, Woven Textile Pathway Leader, BA Textile Design, was both co-curator and exhibitor for this group exhibition.

The CSM Museum and Study Collection collects work by staff, students and alumni and reveals a long tradition of innovative practice. This exhibition (co-curated with teaching staff from BA Textile Design) tells the story of a century of textile design at CSM from the hand block printed textiles of the 1930s to more recent experiments in knitting, weaving, digital printing and laser cutting. The focus of displays is on the process behind the finished pieces – the sketchbooks, prototypes and samples that show how the designer’s ideas have developed over time. The work of 26 designers is on show including teaching staff and students from 1927 to 2015.

The title 'Real Dirty Blue' is drawn from Central School of Arts and Crafts alumna and teacher, Joyce Clissold’s dye book from which a sample colour, labeled ‘real dirty blue’, has been recreated for the show.
