I’m really excited to be so closely involved in curating the forthcoming exhibition ‘Suits & Saris’ at New Walk Museum. The exhibition will be part of the Cultural Olympiad to coincide with the London Olympics in 2012.
At the moment we’re devising narratives and stories, undertaking primary research and starting to think about objects. It’s really wonderful to be able to put my training, and experience, into practice.
And, best of all, a Japanese-produced 1970s/early 80s sari I found in the local Oxfam a few weeks ago, and which I have donated to the museum, is going to feature prominently in the exhibition publicity materials!
