Alistair O’Neill talk: “After Reel Time”


Location: Redstone Theater

A Film Talk by Alistair O’Neill

This illustrated 40-minute talk explores the significance of Annabel Nicolson’s seminal 1973 performance Reel Time, which drew an explicit connection between the technologies of film and clothing, conjoining a film projector and a sewing machine through a loop of celluloid. Alistair O’Neill will discuss the legacy of the artwork, showcasing artists’ films and photographs of the late twentieth century that notably foregrounded textiles, clothing and accessories. O’Neill teaches fashion history and theory at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, London.
