The Crumple and the Scrape: Two Genderqueer Textiles
The Crumple and the Scrape: Two Genderqueer textiles is a lecture by UC Berley College of Environmental Design’s Lucas Crawford, presented by Lo Marshall, looking at the role texture plays in gender and sexuality.
‘Most of us recognize the role that colour plays in gender and its manifestation in design – witness the persistence of pink and blue children’s rooms – but what about texture? In this lecture, poet and scholar Lucas Crawford argues that texture – a word that implies touch, movement, and encounter – can help us better understand how the matter of architecture reproduces gender. Attendees will be exposed to a variety of queer textures from varied genres and sources, notably from theorist Jeanne Vaccaro and architects Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry.’
