Audio – Described: Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles
Join us for an audio-described tour of Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles. This year we are delighted to be working with VocalEyes and this tour will be lead by audio describer Jane Brambley.
From exquisite traditional Balkan costume to contemporary international artworks, textiles offer a beautiful and intensely human insight into our history. This exhibition celebrates seven pioneering women who saw beyond the purely functional, to reveal the extraordinary artistic, social and cultural importance of textiles, through innovative and imaginative collecting. Unbound explores the stories of these women, looks at how their collections continue to influence us today and asks why textiles still have to fight for their place amongst the more established visual arts.
