A Place for Everything

17:00 – 21:00

Join the Fashion team at LJMU for a playful collaborative exhibition throughout the night, shared via Instagram. It has been a strange year for everyone, forcing us all to learn new ways to work, learn and play, from inside our own homes.  The LJMU School of Art & Design Fashion team have produced an evening of new visuals, played out over Instagram, reflecting how these new ways of work and play impact on the world around us.

For LightNight 2021, the team have gathered in the metaphorical playroom. The dressing up box has been upended, books dragged off the shelves and the crayons and felt tips ready to go – we are creating new work inspired by our circumstances.

This playful evening will use a broad range of mediums including photography, video, illustration, sculpture, styling, still life, graphic design, and collage to unite a team that hasn’t worked together in person for over a year.  This project is about collaboration, remembering that although we are in different physical spaces, we can still share, respond and play together. As David Hockney said: “People tend to forget that play is serious”.
