Social fabric: African textiles today @ British Museum

Leave a comment


From the series ‘A New Beginning’ – Araminta de Clermont (2009–2010)

The British Museum’s upcoming exhibition Social Fabric: African textiles today promises a fresh look at textiles from the southern and eastern regions of continent, including how they are made, their history, and their cultural and social significance today. It comes almost exactly a year after Iniva’s wonderfully wide-ranging exhibition of the same name, which was one of my highlights of 2012; it’ll be interesting to see what different threads this new show’s African theme teases out.

There’s a series of gallery talks accompanying the show: more info here.

Show: 14th February – 21st April

Opening hours: daily, 10.00-17.30, Fridays open til 20.30

Room 91, British Museum
Great Russell Street, London
