Alison Moloney

Research Study Grant

Alison was awarded a British Council Art Connects Us grant to travel to Cape Town and Johannesburg to undertake preliminary exhibition research. She was on the panel for the talk Breaking the Mould: Fashion Curation for New Style Re-Publics which questioned if what Walter Benjamin says is true – that fashion is “the mould in which modernity is cast” – what does that mean for our contemporary moment, when new technology has so drastically expanded accessibility to cultural production. The panel discussion included Quaid Heneke (QUEEZY), Lesiba Mabitsela, Sarah Hugo Hamman and Luke Doman with a Q&A facilitated by dress historian and curator Erica de Greef.
