As You Change, So Do I and Departure Lounge present
Leading up to and celebrating International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March, Departure Lounge and Luton Culture have invited acclaimed German artist Catrine Val to create an exhibition of insightful, new photographic and video portraits of women living in the Luton area.
The exhibition explores the importance clothing plays in personal and cultural identity and how working environments can limit women’s everyday fashion choices and ability to express their personality, cultural heritage or religious beliefs.
To highlight the “dual identity” that many women lead through their wardrobe, Catrine Val will invite Lutonian women to pose for two formal portraits, one showing their "professional persona" the other showing the "real persona".
