Description

Craft Unravelled: Misshaping Peterloo Exhibition Tour

Join our curator on a tour of our exhibition Misshaping Peterloo.

Misshaping Peterloo focuses on the idea of commemorative souvenirs. We have commissioned illustrator and ceramicist Alex Sickling to create a collection inspired by the fateful events of 16 August 1819. Working with ideas around “radical ceramics”, how and why we commemorate disaster and political events, finding humour in dark times and how key facts become distorted when meeting a deadline, this exhibition will look at Peterloo from the eyes of the collectors, enthusiasts and consumers.

The talk is free and will be starting on the ground floor near the exhibition stage at 1pm.

This exhibition runs at MCDC from 23 May - 7 September 2019.
