Artist Lecture: Machine Dazzle
Costume Designer for Taylor Mac
Tuesday, September 17, 6pm
Osher Hall, Porteous, Second Floor
Free and open to the public.
Taylor Mac maintains we are “a nation of makers” and that one of his favorite makers is costume designer Machine Dazzle. Machine, whose parents met and married in Pembroke, Maine, will be in residence at Maine College of Art & Design from September 15th – 19th 2019. The residency includes an exhibition of costumes designed for Taylor’s performances, on display in the Bob Crewe Gallery Windows. Select students from the departments of Textiles and Fashion Design will apprentice with Machine during this residency, co-creating something tangibly extraordinary.
During this residency, Machine will also deliver a public lecture, so don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a master the intricate ins and outs of over-the-top costume design!
