It all started as a conversation with a friend, Nina Paim, the editor of Futuress magazine. She suggested that Dr Luiza Prado Martins, the speaker for our Spirals session, Colour Unearthed, draw on the research she had conducted on the history of plants and colonialism to formulate a series of essays on the colonial history of colour.
The 30th of April 2021 marked the last formal day of employment for Professor Pippa Skotnes, our director at the Centre for Curating the Archive. Since being an undergrad in the mid-1970s, Pippa has offered an astonishing 46 years of dedication to the school and university, influencing the lives of its staff, students, and researchers in myriad ways.
The CCA is pleased to announce the next session of the Spirals virtual seminar series, titled 'Colour Unearthed'. We host Dr. Luiza Prado De o. Martins who reflect on the colonial histories attached to a set of vegetal and mineral based colours.
