Françoise Dupré and Rebecca Snow
Françoise Dupré is a London-based French-born artist who creates large textile and sculpture installations that celebrate the everyday and our world of multiple cultures. Combining individual and collaborative-participatory approaches, Dupré leads international and transcultural art projects in collaboration with a wide range of communities and social contexts including migration, post-conflict and health. Her most recent projects explore the contemporary relevance of history and the performative process of remembrance through the activating of individual and community archives and memories. Dupré is a senior lecturer and researcher in Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art-Birmingham City University. Her recent writing on Social Practice through Textiles is published in Cultural Thread, edited by Jessica Hemmings, Bloomsbury (2014).
