This symposium focuses on objects at the intersections between art and fashion, health and medicine.
Curative Things is a collaborative symposium organised by Thing Power Research Group (Leeds Arts University), Thinking Through Things (Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research, supported by Wellcome Trust), and Fashion Research Network.
This symposium focuses on objects at the intersections between art and fashion, health and medicine. Examples might include clothing, prostheses and other wearables: things that have the potential to restrict, contain, embrace or extend the body; things that we wear and that wear us.
