Critical Costume 2024

'​Got Fiction? Whatever the Medium: Costume is the Character'
6-9 March 2024, Los Angeles, USA
David Copley C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design
UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television  

Convened by Professor Deborah Nadoolman Landis, PhD, Critical Costume 2024 seeks original research exploring the role and significance of costume design in motion pictures, television, and live performance, as well as examining the interrelationship between these different areas of costume practice and research. In the costume design and production process, there are various media used to convey the designs, which inevitably influence the outcome and its reception. 
Our sixth major event, Critical Costume 2024 will be hosted in Los Angeles, on the 2024 Academy Awards weekend. Conference attendees will meet the 2024 Oscar nominated costume designers during the annual ‘Sketch to Screen’ panel at the UCLA David C. Copley Center for Costume Design on Saturday, March 9th. This year, Critical Costume 2024 will be film and television centric, although submissions related to live performance will not be excluded.
