Lost in Lace

27th October 2011

Lace is an enduring fabric that seems to always have a place in fashion, design and history and is currently being put under the microscope again as part of the Lost in Lace exhibition in collaboration with the Crafts Council and Birmingham Museum&Art Gallery.

Running from the 29th October to mid Feb it explores a series of artists and designers who are exploring lace in new mediums, scales and as a symbolic language.

Textile futures alumni,Alessia Giardino will be showing her 'Polluted Lace', an environmental concrete lace that develops pattern over time from air pollutants. Designed in collaboration with CTG, the technical centre of Italcementi Group, who patented the TX Active.

Alongside this will be the work of Annie Bascoul and Lise Bjørne Linnert who's work also explores modern takes on a traditional fabric.
