Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting TextilesThe importance of textiles, seen through the eyes of seven female collectors, is revealed through 18th-century costume, traditional Balkan costume and contemporary works at this free exhibition at Two Temple Place. Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles shines a light on the women who defied the 'traditional' concept of collecting and went against established norms to create some of the richest, most diverse and global public collections in the UK today. Just two of the seven are Louisa Pesel,the first President of the Embroiderers Guild and Jennifer Harris, Curator of Textiles at the Whitworth gallery in Manchester until 2016. See 1930s block printed fabrics and Yinka Shonibare's slave ship reimagined with batik fabric sails alongside archival photographs, sketchbooks and letters, many of which have never been shown in public.
