Wearable Art: In Conversation with Sue Kreitzman and Diane Goldie

Born in NYC almost 75 years ago, Sue Kreitzman has lived and worked in London ’s East End for 30 years. After a long career as a food writer and broadcaster she unexpectedly burst into art late in life. Sue supports and encourages young (and old) outsider artists, curates outsider art exhibitions and her own work is in collections the world over. One of the stars of the Channel 4 documentary Fabulous Fashionistas, and – in the New Year – one of Selfridges Bright Old Things (where she will have a Selfridges window all to herself), she is well known for her vibrant sense of style, in which she doesn’t so much get dressed in the morning as curate herself.

Diane Goldie is an artist and former puppeteer who works in collaboration with Sue to create spectacular one-off pieces of wearable art. Trained as a fine artist and painter, Diane has turned her hand to many arts and crafts over the years, from crocheting anthropomorphic creatures to sewing fetuses from cotton jersey. Her brand c.Art is a reaction to the ostracizing of craft techniques from the fine art world, and through the medium of painting, embroidering and appliqueing Diane aims to take art from the gallery walls and bring it to the street in the form of unique fashion pieces.

In conversation with the museum’s Fashion Director Amber Butchart, they will be discussing their artistic collaboration, the links between fashion & art, their sense of personal style, and why ‘growing old gracefully’ is certainly not on the agenda.
