Join us for this online talk with Dr Annebella Pollen, University of Brighton. Picking up on the themes of Lloyd Corporation’s exhibition, Today’s gift is tomorrow’s commodity. Yesterday’s commodity is tomorrow’s found art object. Today’s art object is tomorrow’s junk. And yesterday’s junk is tomorrow’s heirloom, Annebella Pollen explores the local and global circuits of the secondhand clothing market, looking at how divested garments can move at speed through desire and disgust, traversing clashing values of use and waste.
