Students working across Wimbledon College of Arts’ BA Costume for Theatre and Screen, BA Acting and Performance and BA Contemporary Theatre Practice collaborate to tell the stories of paintings found in our 17th-century Spanish and Italian collections.
Making use of art history to inform the future of costume design and interpretation, new narratives and methods of construction that acknowledge the movement and physicality of the performer, are presented in the gallery space.
Join us in Rooms 30 and 32 to experience the outcomes of their research and design.
