Celebrating 50 Years of the Shift Dress

ShiftWorks Exhibition Open Evening 5 November - Continues until 24 December

Celebrating 50 Years of the Shift Dress

Trowbridge Arts invite you to ‘ShiftWorks’, an exhibition from the contemporary textile collective, Seam. The group of nine makers are based in Bath and cross a broad range of textile techniques including print, embroidery, knit, weave, dye, fashion and eco-design.

Looking for a way to demonstrate the many different working methods within the group, they took inspiration from the concept of the shift dress. This straight-lined simple dress shape has become ubiquitous since its emergence in 1965. Each member of Seam has taken the basic pattern and used their own unique processes to showcase textile design. The dresses, not all of which are wearable, have become a canvas for their ideas.

To celebrate the fifty years since the mainstream adoption of the shift dress Seam invited members of the public to send in photographs of their favourite shift dresses. Fifty of these collected photographs accompany the dresses in the exhibition.

Brean Down Fort is Home to Art Intervention

A Sense of Place

Four Somerset-based artists; Donna Vale, Joy Merron, Amanda Boyd and Jon England are working alongside conservation scientist Matthew Bjerregaard from Visual Persistence and Melinda Watson from the RAW Foundation to bring together an art work called Sense of Place.

Each artist responds to the life and history of Brean Down Fort through large and small-scale installations.

Brean Down Fort is owned by the National Trust and situated close to Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset. Permission was granted for the use of the site for the duration of Somerset Art Weeks, which runs from Saturday 3rd October to Sunday 18th October 2015.  

The aim of this project is to respond to the stories of the people, landscape and buildings on the site.  Forming connections with those who lived and worked at Brean Down.  The place itself is key to the work. Past histories are brought to life through art - capturing the imagination of visitors.  Audience engagement will be an important part of the exhibition within the fort.
