Beauty by Design

17th April 2015, 7:30 for 8pm. RSVP
Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh EH2 1JD

Beauty by Design is an exhibition that questions cultural commonplaces about beauty and body image by linking the renaissance art collections of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scottish National Gallery to contemporary fashion.

Speakers will explore the engineering and allure of body-modifying corsetry, the chemistry and brutality of renaissance beauty regimes and the use of fashion as a political canvas raising awareness. Hosted by Tricia Allerston, Deputy Director at the Scottish National Gallery.


LateLab is a collaboration between Edinburgh International Science Festival and New Media Scotland.Supported by Marks & Clerk
