Description

About this event

Come along and meet artist Nigel Hurlstone and find out more about his film 'Stuck up with tape' on show as part of our Strands of Place and Time exhibition. Nigel's film creates a narrative in response to World War One souvenir postcards in the collection.

About Strands of Place and Time

Strands of Place and Time explores and shares new perspectives on cultural heritage and migration in response to world textiles in the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection at Gawthorpe Hall. The exhibition brings together new textile, film and ceramic work by Manchester School of Art’s Alice Kettle, Jane McKeating, Elnaz Yazdani, Nigel Hurlstone and Poppy Cartwright, with a textile installation by Omaid, a local group of refugees and asylum seekers newly-arrived in the north-west from around the world.

A diverse mix of textiles from Africa, India, China, Persia, Greece, Switzerland and France inspired the artists and makers. The work they have created in response to these textiles is displayed throughout Gawthorpe Hall, the Elizabethan mansion that was the ancestral home of Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth, the textile collection’s founder.

The exhibtion is on display 11 July - 3 November 2019.
