Ms Joanne Hackett
- Lecturer (History of Art)
I am an accredited textile conservator with over 25 years experience in the museum sector in the UK and USA, working in organizations such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Boston Museum of Fine Art. I have extensive experience in the delivery of fashion exhibitions having been lead conservator on 'Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion', 'Shoes: Pleasure and Pain' and 'Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980's' amongst others. I am a fellow of the International Institute of Conservation, a fellow of the American Institute for Conservation and a member of the Scientific Committee of the Bayeux Tapestry.
I am part of the Kelvin Centre for Conservation and Cultural Heritage Research, University of Glasgow, Kelvin Hall, 1445 Argyle St, Glasgow G3 8AW.
My research interests stem from my practice as a textile conservator working on costume and mixed material organic objects. I am particularly interested in the cleaning and stabilization of vulnerable organic and plastic materials.
