Distant Fellowship

Morris and South Asia


24 May to 19 September 2021

  • Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm. Free admission (suggested donation £5). Please book in advance to guarantee entry and to save time.

Exploring and problematising Morris’s connections with South Asia, this exhibition features new work by former artists in residence Priya Sundram and Nia Thandapani. Sundram and Thandapani have designed a new pattern based on Morris’s designs which is being made by traditional block printers in India and used to create a domestic-style space within the Gallery, where visitors can explore alternative resources around Morris and South Asia in various community languages. The exhibition will also feature interventions throughout the permanent galleries by artists with links to South Asia.
